ISEL launched the Procurement Law Forum in June 2010 to provide a regular forum for analysis, debate and discussion of Irish and EU procurement law and policy. The forum provides an opportunity to participate in informal roundtable discussions on developments in a complex area of law and public policy with Irish and international policy makers, practitioners and commentators.
The Procurement Law Forum is organised by its own subcommittee. The Procurement Law Forum subcommittee consists of Joanne Finn (Eugene F. Collins) (Chair), Catherine Donnelly (Law Library, Blackstone Chambers London and Trinity College Dublin), Robert McDonagh (Mason Hayes + Curran) and Roger Leviton (Susquehanna International Group).
Entry to Procurement Law Forum events is free of charge to members. A fee is generally payable by nonmembers. Recent events are set out below. Where provided, material from the forum is available for ISEL members to download.
