Appointment of Judges in Ireland – a need for reform – a legal news update from Kilkenny Solicitors Holland Condon

Feb 10, 2014

The Irish Law Society has just sent a 38-page submission to Justice Minister Alan Shatter recommending major changes designed to de-politicise the system for appointing Judges.

They recommend the introduction of a rigorous assessment, by the Judicial Appointments Advisory Board, of every candidate in accordance with published categories of ‘merit criteria’, with just three names per judicial position then sent to the Minister for Justice instead of the far greater number of names under the current system.
