Case Notes

The Cork Online Law Review is delighted to announce that we are accepting case notes for our case note competition.

Case notes can be written on any recent judgment of the Irish courts, Court of Justice of the European Union or the European Court of Human Rights. Case notes should set out the facts of the case, the decision of the court along with the legal reasoning, and finally an analysis of the decision and its broader implications.
