Event description
This Constitution Unit seminar discusses this longstanding question.

About this Event

‘Brexit has triggered a constitutional as well as a political crisis, and it is time that we had a written constitution’. So many people believe; but are they right? And how should we set about drafting one?

In this seminar, Prof Sionaidh Douglas-Scott (Queen Mary) will make the case for a written constitution, and Prof Nick Barber (Oxford) will explain the case against.

Speakers

Prof Sionaidh Douglas-Scott, Anniversary Chair in Law at Queen Mary University of London

Prof Nick Barber, Professor of Constitutional Law and Theory at the University of Oxford
