Photo Gallery – Pearse Jordan Memorial Lecture, west Belfast
BARRISTER Karen Quinlivan delivered the Pearse Jordan Memorial Lecture on Saturday 24 November in St Aidan's school, west Belfast.
Quinlivan, who has been representing the Jordan family on their journey through the North's legal quagmire in their pursuit of justice, outlined the many twists and turns the case has taken.
The barrister told the audience that if it wasn't for the persistence and determination of the Jordan family then the breakthrough in legal changes made to the North's inquest system would not have taken place.
Teresa jordan presented Karen Quinlivan with a piece of Belfast crystal in appreciation of her work with the family.
