We are delighted to announce the publication of Dr. Thomas Mohr’s Guardian of the Treaty by Four Courts Press. Further details are available on our publications page.
All members of the Society will receive a complimentary copy, while non-members can purchase their copy here.
The Judicial Committee of the Privy Council was the final appellate court of the British Empire. Dr. Mohr examines the history of the Irish appeal to the Privy Council in the 1920s and 30s, and looks at the politics behind appeals.
In 1935 the Irish Free State became the first part of the Empire to abolish the right of appeal to the Privy Council.
The front cover features a painting of the Privy Council chamber by Ptolemy Dean.
