Counterparts: A Synergy of Law and Literature edited by Danielle McLaughlin in aid of Peter McVerry Trust.

The anthology is arranged as a series of pairings, with writing by contemporary Irish lawyer-writers paired with extracts from a legal judgment of the writers’ choosing. The writers also offer their reasons for choosing that particular judgment. In some cases a law report may have prompted a new piece of writing; in others, writers may see resonances of theme or language between the legal writing of the judgment and the themes they seek to explore in their own work; or it may simply be that they were drawn to a fascinating human story told in fine language, as the law reports so often deliver!
