The Brehon Law Society came into existence 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 Northern Ireland.
In service of this end, the law society takes as its reference points three landmark legal documents of immense significance: the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. Together, these documents articulate the aspirations of the member nations of the United Nations.
