Cafe Conversation - Crime & Inequality, 6th May 2015

Cafe Conversation - Crime & Inequality, 6th May 2015

Friday, 24 April 2015

BCLC invites YOU to join a conversation in AXIS café on 6th May 2015 at 1pm. The conversation will be about CRIME and INEQUALITY and we will be joined by NORA NI LOINSIGH BL, School of Law Trinity College who will discuss property offences with us and their relationship with inequality in Ireland. What part may property offences have in societal inequality? Is there a connection between District Court appearance and deprivation, poverty and inequality? Does the criminal law protect those who have interests in property, at the potential expense of those who do not? With the Axis Cafe lunch deal, let's tuck in with food for thought. Hope to see you there!

Please note the office is closed on Monday 4th May 2015.

Where to find us:

Unit 1A Shangan Neighbourhood Centre, Shangan Road, Ballymun, Dublin 9 beside DCU in the Community.
