The Brehon law Society of Nassau County, N.Y. came into existence in 2002. The organization is modeled on the Brehon Law Society in the City of New York which was founded in 1978. The organization takes its name from the body of ancient Celtic law that defined and governed legal relationships on the island of Ireland. From earliest times, Brehon law was distinguished by its egalitarianism and by its respect for fundamental rights and liberties. Inspired by the strongly humanitarian tradition embodied in the Brehon law, the members of the Brehon Law Society strive to use their talents to protect, to defend, and to extend human rights, principally – but not exclusively – in the north of Ireland.
A primary focus of the Brehon Law Society of Nassau County, NY is the monitoring and eradication of violations of human rights and civil liberties in the north of Ireland. The activities of our organization are guided by the view that unless the root causes of political conflict and social injustice are responsibly addressed – and ultimately resolved – systematic violation of human rights will continue unabated in the six northeastern counties of Ireland that constitute the north of Ireland.
