In 1921, Northern Ireland was created as a nation. 100 years on, we look at how Northern Ireland's political structure, economy, education and culture have grown during this time, as well as how it is managing current issues such as equality, justice, Brexit and identity.
We are pleased to have two exceptional speakers for this discussion. Sam McBride is the political editor of the Belfast Newsletter, the world's oldest daily newspaper. He is considered one of the UK's foremost journalists and was shortlisted for the British Journalism Awards 2020. Sam is the author of the critically acclaimed 'Burned', which chronicles the renewable heat initiative scandal and how it led to devolution collapsing in 2017.
Sam is joined by one of Northern Ireland's foremost politicians, Claire Hanna MP. Claire has been a Belfast city councillor and an MLA in Stormont. She is now an MP at Westminster, representing Belfast South, having achieved a significant victory over the incumbent in 2019.
This live session will be chaired by Michael Walker, Associate at Mishcon de Reya and will be held virtually on Zoom. This is a Mishcon Academy event, and part of the London Irish Lawyers Association NI at 100 Talk Series.
