Volume 2, Issue 1 is a special edition on the Presumption of Innocence, which arises out of a seminar on that topic held at Dublin Institute of Technology at the end of 2010. The Forward to the issue was written by Mr Justice Hardiman who comments that “All in all, these papers represent a refreshing, sometimes challenging, attempt to analyse the position of the presumption of innocence in our law and the effect which it is permitted to have in practice.”
The issue contains four articles on the topic of the presumption of innocence:
- The Presumption of Innocence in Irish Criminal Law: Recent Trends and Possible ExplanationsÂ – Dr. C. Hamilton
- Miscarriages of Justice in Ireland: A Survey of the Jurisprudence with Suggestions for the FutureÂ – David Langwallner
- How the Presumption of Innocence Renders the Innocent Vulnerable to Wrongful ConvictionsÂ – Dr. Michael Naughton
- The Innocence Rights of Sentenced OffendersÂ – Dr. Mary Rogan
