the Irish for rights

Third Legal Education Symposium, UCD

Quinn School, UCD, via their site.Following the first symposium in Trinity College Dublin and the second in University College Cork, third Legal Research Symposium is ongoing today, hosted by University College Dublin‘s School of Law in the Quinn School of Business (pictured left). The theme for this year’s symposium is Legal Education in Context and In Practice. Organised this year by Prof Blanaid Clarke and Dr Marie-Luce Paris-Dobozy, this year’s symposium is sponsored by UCD’s , whose generosity is all the greater in these more straitened financial climes.

Irish legal education faces many challenges, some shared with the rest of the university sector (the impending re-introduction of fees, government policy favouring ever greater co-operation (integration?) by universities especially at the graduate level, all in a difficult financial climate), some specific to Law Schools (the peculiar problems faced by academic law schools faced with professional obligations, whilst seeking to facilitate international research in a small jurisdiction). This symposium is a significant annual contribution to these important ongoing debates.

Me in a hatHi there! Thanks for dropping by. I’m Eoin O’Dell, and this is my blog: Cearta.ie – the Irish for rights.

“Cearta” really is the Irish word for rights, so the title provides a good sense of the scope of this blog.

In general, I write here about private law, free speech, and cyber law; and, in particular, I write about Irish law and education policy.

Blogroll (or, really, a non-blogroll)

What I'd like for here is a simple widget that takes the list of feeds from my existing RSS reader and displays it here as a blogroll. Nothing fancy. I'd love a recommendation, if you have one.

I had built a blogroll here on my Google Reader RSS subscriptions. Google Reader produced a line of html for each RSS subscription category, each of which I pasted here. So I had a list of my subscriptions as my blogroll, organised by category, which updated whenever I edited Google Reader. Easy peasy. However, with the sad and unnecessary demise of that product, so also went this blogroll. Please take a moment to mourn Google Reader. If there's an RSS reader which provides a line of html for the list of subscriptions, or for each RSS subscription category as Google Reader did, I'd happily use that. So, as I've already begged, I'd love a recommendation, if you have one.

Meanwhile, please bear with me until I find a new RSS+Blogroll solution
