Lord Chief Justice Visit to Foyle College

The Right Honourable Sir Declan Morgan, Lord Chief Justice of Northern Ireland visited school this morning to meet with students to discuss the role of the Judiciary and the Rule of Law.

The Chief Justice met with a group of students who are interested in studying law and other social sciences for an informal round-table discussion.  He then took a series of questions from students on a broad range of issues, including human rights issues, recent case law and other political issues of the day.

The Chief Justice said: “I was delighted to attend the impressive new building at Foyle College this morning and meet the students.  I am grateful to the pupils and the staff for making time for me.  I spent a very interesting morning discussing the role of the judiciary and some recent cases with the students, all of whom demonstrated a broad knowledge of the law and social and political issues.  I wish them every success with their future studies and careers.”
