Six-Monthly Listing of S.I.s - January to June 2014
Statutory Instruments are a form of 'secondary legislation' which allow Government Ministers or agencies/bodies such as the Revenue Commissioners to legislate in respect of the minor or day to day details arising from the operation of a primary piece of legislation (i.e. an Act).
Statutory Instruments typically take the form of orders (i.e. Ministerial Orders) and regulations, and can be used to do a number of things, including transposing EU Directives.
On average over 600 SIs are laid before the Houses each year.

Sanctions for Misconduct in Judicial Office
No. 7 of 2014 (Published in August 2014)
This Spotlight provides an overview of the process by which misconduct in judicial office is dealt with in Ireland and in a number of other jurisdictions. The Spotlight sets out the Constitutional position of the Irish judiciary who may only be removed from office for ‘stated misbehaviour’ or ‘incapacity’. In the vast majority of cases, there is currently no means to deal with misconduct in judicial office which does not amount to ‘stated misbehaviour’ in Ireland. For comparative purposes, this Spotlight describes the procedures for the removal and discipline of judges in other common law jurisdictions. A brief overview is also provided of the relevant procedures in Scotland and South Africa, both of which have mixed legal systems.
