Mark Finnegan talks to Dr AOIFE O’DONOGHUE , Snr Lecturer at Durham Law School.
Aoife is Co- Director of The Northern/Irish Feminists Judgement Project, and chats about the idea behind the project and its findings to date. The project aims to bring a new critical methodology to bear on Irish and Northern Irish legal studies. A collective of academics and practitioners has come together to write the “missing feminist judgments” in appellate cases which have shaped Irish and Northern Irish law. The project follows the example of others in Canada, England and Australia, while modifying the methodology to take account of peculiarly Irish and Northern Irish aspirations and challenges. In particular, the Project will provide a forum for new work which considers how themes of gender and collective identity have cross-cut women’s experience before the law of both jurisdictions on the island of Ireland.
