New at the institute: Donal Coffey
At the institute since January 1st, 2016
Donal Coffey is investigating the change in the legal structure of the Commonwealth of Nations between the first and second World Wars. The project is based on a comparative, multi-focal analysis, using primary archival materials from the United Kingdom and each of the Dominions. It examines how the idea of a unitary Commonwealth legal system was undermined through legal developments in the inter-War period. Donal Coffey completed his PhD at University College Dublin and previously lectured at the Universities of Portsmouth and Surrey.
