On Writing Law Review Articles for the Marketplace of Ideas: Leaders' Questions in the Irish Parliament

Micheál Martin (Leader of the Opposition; Cork South Central, Party: Fianna Fail) 

Dáil debates, Kildare Street (Oct. 18, 2016, 2:05 P.M.),

"The Court of Appeal backlog could take over a decade to clear. That is not my assessment but that of Mr. Seth Barrett Tillman, law lecturer at Maynooth University. I understand--perhaps the Taoiseach will confirm if this has happened--that the Chief Justice and the President of the High Court have approached the Government with a view to having more judges appointed to the Court of Appeal. Either that has happened or it has not." 

Fianna Fail Leader Micheál Martin was quoting from my: Seth Barrett Tillman, Has the Irish Court of Appeal Solved the Judicial Backlog? Can it?, 34 Irish Law Times 210 (2016), http://ssrn.com/abstract=2816458 (also available on Westlaw.ie).
