    Stephen graduated from Trinity College Dublin with a Bachelor of Laws (LLB) in 2012 and is currently a Postgraduate Research Student in Law at Trinity College Dublin.

    During his time as chair of Trinity FLAC Stephen co-founded the Trinity College Dublin Public Interest Law Initiative. This led to creation of ‘Daonnacht’, a bi-annual online publication aimed at encouraging discourse on social justice, civil rights and public interest law and public policy. Stephen was also involved in establishing the Social Welfare and Employment Law Advisory Group, a project aimed at providing legal information on employment and social welfare rights to members of the public.


    Stephen was the lead researcher on the Trinity College Dublin United Nations Periodic Review Submission and was co-editor of 2013 2(2) Irish Community Law Journal, a peer reviewed journal published and run by the Northside Community Law Centre.


    Stephen has a keen interest in public interest law, juvenile justice and administrative law. He has a number of peer and non-peer reviewed publications in the areas of community economic development law, international humanitarian law, penal policy reform and public interest law. In addition he has assisted in drafting a number of Private Members Bills including most recently the Child Care (Amendment no.3) Bill 2013.


    Stephen joined KOD Lyons Solicitors in 2013, following an internship on our Summer Internship Programme.
