The Labour Party demanded the right to choose the Attorney General in the coalition government of 1984. At the time Mary Robinson was expected to be chosen, instead the nomination went to John Rogers, who had not yet been appointed a Senior Counsel (SC). Traditionally a new Attorney General would have practised as a Senior Counsel for a number of years prior to his or her appointment. Rogers was appointed an SC on the day he was made Attorney General. He has worked as a senior counsel in the Law Library, Dublin from 1987 to date.
