Mark Lazarowicz, one of the Conference organisers, said:

“The outlines of what Brexit will mean for Scotland are becoming clearer. The UK government has now outlined its Brexit strategy and its plans for a ‘Great Repeal Bill’. The EU has set down its negotiating principles, and the Scottish Government has drawn up its proposals for post-Brexit arrangements for Scotland.This conference will bring together some of Scotland’s leading experts on what Brexit will mean for law, legislation, and the courts. It will examine the continuing role of EU law in the UK after Brexit, and how UK legislation might diverge from EU law in the future . It will look at the way that the negotiations between the UK and the EU are likely to develop, what might happen in a transitional period after UK departure from the European Union, and the future position of EU nationals in the UK. This conference is a must for practising lawyers, academics, and those working in the field of public policy.”
