The past century and a half has seen fundamental changes in the laws of Ireland, north and south. Despite the ups and downs of Irish history there is a remarkable degree of continuity in the problems facing Irish society and in the legal solutions to those problems. This collections of essays, written by members of the Faculty of Law at The Queen's University of Belfast and published to mark the sesquicentenary of the Queen's Colleges in Ireland, presents a fascinating selection of 'snapshots' illustrating the combination of continuity and change in the areas of property law (including cultural property), the development of women's rights to own and inherit property, the administration of criminal justice, 'alternative' justice, contract law, welfare law and the legal protection of the Irish environment. The wide-ranging nature of the legal issues and materials discussed provide a unique and valuable contribution to a more general understanding of the modern law in the two Irish jurisdictions.
