Minister Alan Shatter to Launch YFG Branch in Kings Inns

Minister Justice, Equality and Defence, Alan Shatter T.D. will formally launch the new branch of Young Fine Gael (YFG) in Kings Inns today, (Wednesday) April 10th, 2013 at 8.00 p.m. at the Upper Lecture Theatre in Kings Inns.

The Minister will address the branch, barristers, solicitors and guests of the branch on the subject of reforms relating to the courts and the legal profession.

Speaking in advance of the launch the Minister for Justice, Equality and Defence, Alan Shatter TD, said: "I am honoured to launch the Kings Inns branch of YFG and to have an opportunity to speak about the substantial reform agenda which is currently underway. Specifically, legislative proposals including the Legal Services Regulation Bill 2011, the Courts Bill 2013 and proposals to establish a new Court of Appeal and a separate Family Court structure, are aimed at modernising and reforming our legal services and to make them fit for purpose in the 21 Century. These fundamental reforms are long overdue and provide Government with a unique opportunity to provide the leadership for change that has been missing for so many years".

"YFG welcomes members from the ages of 15 to 30. The launch of the new Kings Inns' branch of YFG is important as it expands the branch network and also proves that the organisation is a campaigning and policy driven organisation, which welcomes members who have completed their university studies and are pursuing professional development in their careers," YFG President, Patrick Molloy said.

"It is important for YFG as an organisation to represent all younger people in Ireland, from the ages of 15-30, so that the political system engages with the issues that are of importance to younger people in Ireland," he continued.

"We are delighted that Minister Alan Shatter will formally launch the new branch – it indicates that Fine Gael Ministers and politicians in general are open to hearing about the issues that affect younger people, including younger people training in the legal profession," Patrick Molloy concluded.

New members are always welcome to attend. The branch will formally propose that it is named the John Maurice Kelly branch.
