The Law on Res Judicata and Double Jeopardy
Both res judicata and double jeopardy play an important role in Irish civil and criminal law. This key book steers legal practitioners through these important areas with clarity and detail. The law of res judicata deals with all of the circumstances in which parties are barred from litigating an issue because of the result of previous litigation. Double jeopardy is concerned with how many times the state can prosecute someone for the same offence.
