Forensic Accounting in a Constitutional Parliamentary Democracy: The Case of Ireland (2014)

Abstract The paper commences by summarizing the economic geography of Ireland followed by an overview of the Irish legal system. While similar in many respects to the British system from which it is derived, Ireland has a constitution based on the American model, to which parliament is subject. Lawyers and the operation of the courts in Ireland are described. While bearing some similarities to the British system, there are notable differences which are highlighted in the paper. The engagement of forensic accountants as expert witnesses in the Irish courts is considered. The paper concludes by observing that while forensic accounting is thriving in Ireland, it is at an early stage of development as far as professional guidelines and education provision is concerned.
