on 'The Comparative Method and Law Reform' in 1990. He was called to the Bar in 1988 and his Ph.D. was conferred by Trinity
College Dublin in 2000 for a thesis on the topic 'Criminal Procedure and Mental Health'. He runs the Irish Law e-mail discussion
group and the Irish Law Site (www.irishlaw.org), which is hosted at UCC. His research interests include Mental Health Law and Internet Regulation. He is Director of UCC’s
LLM in Intellectual Property and E Law. Darius is one of the Public Leads for Creative Commons Ireland. He is currently President of the Irish Mental Health Lawyers Association, the members of which represent patients admitted to approved centres under the Mental Health Act 2001.
I welcome inquiries from students interested in undertaking a Ph.D. in one of my areas of interest, for example Mental Health Law, Internet Law or Employment Law.
