Plan for designated 'legal quarter'
THE Courts Service has proposed to Dublin City Council that the area bounded by Kings' Inns and the city's quays be designated a legal quarter.
Given the high concentration of court houses and related legal services, the Courts Service says the creation of a legal quarter will result in many benefits, including a more efficient and accessible legal system, spin-off benefits for the local community and enhanced competitiveness for the economy.
A spokesman for the Courts Service said a feasibility study on the plan had been commissioned.
Ongoing discussions with the City Council on the proposal are also taking place, the Courts Service spokesman said.
