How this works: If you want to improve an article, but you don't know what sources to use or how or where to find them, ask a question here. Try to be specific about the article or subject you're working on and link to it if possible. Mention what kind of access to libraries you have, as what source you use might depend on what source you can actually get. Please sign your posts with ~~~~

Did Art Cosgrove eventually get called to the Irish Bar?Edit

(from [1] Art Cosgrove article)) In 2007 former University President of University College Dublin, Art Cosgrove obtained the Barrister-at-Law degree qualification from King's Inns but declined to take the statutory Irish exams needed to be called to the Bar.[1] He took legal action over the issue.[2] Cosgrove is understood to be fluent in Irish but feels that the exam required by legislation passed in 1929 to be inappropriate in 2007.[1] The law was changed to provide a system for Barristers to learn Irish as part of their studies.[3] It was then reported that, after a period of illness preceding July 2008,[4] he would become a Barrister in October 2008. Did this ever happen? --Bogger (talk) 16:50, 6 December 2021 (UTC)
