from Friday 29 April to Saturday 30 April 2011.

Call for Papers
The Society is seeking especially proposals which place Irish law (in either part of Ireland) in a comparative dimension but is also open to comparative analyses from other legal systems. Any topic in comparative law or legal systems may be proposed: private or public law, criminal law and criminal justice, legal education, legal history, etc. Papers on European or international law will also be considered. Proposals should be short (250 words) and emailed to Marie-Luce Paris, School of Law, University College Dublin. The deadline for receipt of proposals is 21 February 2011. You do not have to be a member of the ISCL to propose a paper.

The Annual General Meeting and first plenary address by Dr Eric Descheemaeker, University of Bristol, will take place on Friday 30 April. Conference sessions, the second plenary address by Professor Patrick Glenn, McGill University, and conference dinner will take place on Saturday 30 April. Further information will be available shortly via the ISCL’s blog.

The Irish Society of Comparative Law
The ISCL was established in June 2008 and is recognized by The International Academy of Comparative Law. The ISCL is open to those interested in Irish and comparative law. Its purpose is to encourage the comparative study of law and legal systems and to seek affiliation with individuals and organizations with complimentary aims. Queries should be emailed to the Secretary of the Society, Dr Bénédicte Sage-Fuller, Faculty of Law, University College Cork.

Future events
The next annual conference will be held in University College Cork on 2-3 March 2012.

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
