Legal Cases that Changed Ireland documents the stories and the experiences of the individuals who have taken legal cases of social importance.

Their stories help us to understand more about the nature of legal processes. Legal Cases that Changed Ireland provides a rare opportunity for litigants, lawyers, academics, policy makers and members of the public to share those stories.

The cases discussed include those which have brought about positive change in the public interest generally, and in particular for women's rights; the rights of LGBT persons and the rights of migrants.
