Welcome. My name is Laura Hutchinson and I am a civil legal practitioner in the Republic of Ireland, with five years’ experience on the Dublin and South Eastern Circuits. My main areas of practice are family law and personal injuries, but I also cover a wide variety of civil matters including, but not limited to, licensing, employment law, negligence, and contract law.
I am lucky to have a career that I am passionate about and, through this website, I hope to share some of that passion with you. Most of the posts will be objective discussions and explanations of certain areas of the law, but some will include practical and personal experience, such as how some regulations are applied in practice, and how the Irish courts interpret various statutory provisions. I will also give some insight into how the judicial system operates, and the ways in which different cases progress through the courts.
The law is ever-changing and, by maintaining and updating this site, I aim to ensure that I constantly keep up with new developments in my areas of practice. I hope that you will find it useful, informative, and insightful, as much as I will find it enjoyable, challenging, and rewarding.
