About Byrne and McCutcheon on the Irish Legal System

Byrne and McCutcheon on the Irish Legal System, 6th edition provides an excellent introduction to the legal system in Ireland and is essential for any student starting legal studies in Ireland. It has been an established title that has been the undergraduate text for law students since 1986. Beginning with an overview of the Irish Legal system and its history, it proceeds to discuss the profession and the law officers of the state including changes in the organisation of the profession in other common law states.

It includes all the changes to the court systems and structure, Irish Constitution and EC Law since the last edition published in 2009. It is the only title in this area that deals with the creation of the new Court of Appeal and the ground-breaking proposals made under the Legal Services Regulation Bill. Byrne and McCutcheon on the Irish Legal System is an invaluable introduction to the law and provides an accessible and comprehensive point of reference for practitioners and students alike and is an essential text for students of Irish law.

Key legislation and case law includes:
- Legal Services Regulation Bill 2011;
- The Thirty-Third Amendment of the Constitution (resulting in the creation of a new Court of Appeal);
- Arbitration Act 2010.

“In this book the authors have set out to pierce that great curtain of ignorance [of the law],; this book is directed towards the general public as well as to the student and practitioner; it is a book that requires concentration and study; it deserves both… it is right to pay tribute to their energy, research and initiative and, particularly, to their clarity of expression.” –  Mr Justice Niall McCarthy, Foreword to the First Edition, Byrne and McCutcheon on the Irish Legal System
