Senior solicitors, barristers and a Court of Appeal judge are set to deliver bite-sized updates on the law at a fundraising event for the Capuchin Day Centre for Homeless People later this month.

Attendees at the next Lawyers Against Homelessness (LAH) CPD event will hear from 12 speakers, including Ms Justice Mary Irvine, on topics including taxation, commercial law, personal injury litigation, road traffic legislation and licensing.

Solicitors Kirby Tarrant of Clark Hill, Aidan Eames of Eames Solicitors, Kevin O’Higgins, Bríd Nic Suibhne of A&L Goodbody and Majella Lavin, in-house costs accountant at BLM, are among the speakers at the event.

They are joined on the line-up by barristers Hugh O’Neill SC, Edward Walsh SC, Constance Cassidy SC, Martin Dully BL, Shane English BL and Ben O’Connor BL.

The seminar on Thursday 21 March is the first event of the year from the group, which was launched last year as a collaboration between barristers and solicitors and has already raised nearly €80,000 to date.

Ms Cassidy, chairperson of Lawyers Against Homelessness, told Irish Legal News: “Since LAH was formed in November 2019 to help Brother Kevin, we have raised €85,000, 100% of which has gone to Brother Kevin in his lifelong mission to end homelessness.

“The CPD seminar is a wonderful opportunity to meet with legal friends, young and old, get updates on current legal topics from the country’s best legal brains, earn 4 CPD points and support the fight against our escalating homelessness crisis.”
