About Empirical Legal Studies in Law and Psychology

Overview

The focus of this course is interactions between individuals and the state through the lens of legal psychology.

Students will learn to identify risks to justice in the individual-state relationship (e.g., bias, erroneous assumptions, systemic or institutional weaknesses) and will examine evidence-based measures to manage those risks.

Using interdisciplinary materials, law students will become acquainted with applications of the psycho-legal empirical evidence base to analyse law in action and support legal reforms.

Each lecture examines current issues and debates in a particular domain, e.g., criminal law, mental health law, family law.

Each topic is examined in five ways to develop a legally integrated and comprehensive consideration of the impact of evidence-based approaches across the range of legal practice.

About Comparative Constitutional Law

Overview

The Course explores the interconnections between the Indian and Irish Constitutions. Comparative Constitutional Law is emerging as an independent area of law and practice.

Most modern Constitutions, like the Indian Constitution, borrow from other Constitutions at the stage of design i.e. writing the Constitution and at the stage of its interpretation.

The Indian Supreme Court has a long history of using comparative law in its judgments. It may seem unusual that any fruitful comparison could be drawn between as small a state as Ireland, and one as large as India: yet, curiously, there are significant areas where, Indians and Irish, as people, lawyers, and judges, meet “our own image” in law.

It is, of course, a two way “mirror”, which reflects both ways. The overarching theme of the course is how to maintain the legitimacy of a constitution in the face of political, economic and social change, all of which impose pressures on the fabric of a constitution itself.
