The Hardiman Lecture Series was named in honour of the late Mr. Justice Adrian Hardiman in 2016 following his sudden passing. Mr. Justice Hardiman was a participant each year on the lecture series from its inception in 2013. The Lecture Series forms a key element of the Chief Justice’s Summer Placement Programme for Law Students.
• The Chief Justice’s Summer Internship Programme for Law Students was initiated in 2013 by then Chief Justice Ms. Justice Susan Denham. The Programme has been continued by the current Chief Justice Mr. Justice Frank Clarke.
• Each year, during the Trinity legal term, the Chief Justice hosts students a placement programme that provides students from third level institutions in Ireland, Wales and the United States of America with the opportunity to be placed with a judge of the Superior Courts.
• In 2020, owing to the prevailing public health restrictions arising from the COVID-19 pandemic, both the Placement Programme and Hardiman Lecture Series moved to an online setting.
Lectures will be pre-recorded and delivered on Zoom at the scheduled time.
• Registration for each lecture on the Series will be via EventBrite.
• Speakers will participate in a live Questions & Answers session at conclusion of lecture.
• The Chatham House rule applies - matters can be discussed on the call but not repeated outside the forum.
