Mark Lazarowicz, one of the Conference organisers, said:

The UK Government has now pulled the Article 50 trigger to give formal notification of ‘Brexit’ to the EU. It is expected that the EU will give an indication of its response to the UK’s initial negotiating stance shortly afterwards. As a result, in the next few weeks we are likely to get more indications of the type of relationship that the UK, including Scotland, might have with Europe after ‘Brexit’.

This major conference will therefore take place at a time when the possible consequences of ‘Brexit’ for the legal system, legislation, and government in Scotland are beginning to become clearer. It will look at how the Brexit negotiations with the EU are likely to develop, and the likely outcomes of those negotiations.

This conference will be a unique opportunity to hear from some of the leading experts on what Brexit will mean for Scotland.”
