Letters to the Editor

In the light of Shane Ross's attempt to introduce lay people into the system of judicial selection, might I proffer my services?

I believe that I would be eminently suitable for a position on the putative board. My late brother was clerk of the court for Meath, my son has a law degree and my husband assures me, quite regularly, that I am forensic in disputation and nit picking.

Further, I have read 'To Kill a Mockingbird', my favourite film is '...And Justice for All' and I have watched every episode of 'The Good Wife', 'Boston Legal', 'Law and Order' (New York and UK), 'The Practice', 'Ally McBeal', 'Perry Mason' and 'Rumpole of the Bailey'. While I await Deputy Ross's response I will watch another episode of 'Judge Judy' just to keep my expertise honed in readiness.
