“The end of uncertainty?”:
practical questions after BREXIT:
Persons, devolved government and courts

Thursday 30th July at 10.30 UK time / 11.30 EU
Online via Zoom upon registration

The UK has voted to leave the European Union and is currently discussing the terms upon which future relations will be conducted. It appears that there will be no extension of the time to establish new regimes after January 2021. Immensely important questions need to be settled. The Franco-British Lawyers’ Society and the School of Law at Glasgow University jointly presented a webinar on Thursday July 3 July 2020 during which distinguished experts reviewed progress and identified concerns in a number of key areas, including criminal justice, research, universities, and cross border exchanges. It was clear from the large number of participants that there is a strong desire for thoughtful analysis.
So, the decision was taken to hold such events regularly as the year proceeds, and as long as there is a need for clarification.

This second webinar will focus on persons and the problems of regulation inherent in the devolved governmental structure of the UK, as well as dialogue between judges. Future webinars will touch on state aid, competition, trade and other topics. The format will encourage questions and free exchange of ideas about critical uncertainties which ought to be resolved this year.

The speakers will be:

– Prof. Catherine Barnard, Professor of European Union and Labour Law at Trinity College, Cambridge a leading academic and policy commentator

– Fiona Godfrey, Chair of British in Europe, the largest body advocating for personal rights post Brexit.

– Prof. Sylvaine Poillot-Peruzzetto, Conseillère at the Cour de cassation, Professor of private law at the University of Toulouse who has particular knowledge of how problems cross borders and the role of dialogue in addressing them

– Michael Russell, Cabinet Secretary for the Constitution, Europe and External Affairs, Scottish Government with ministerial responsibility for Scotland’s status post Brexit

Chaired by Ian Forrester LL.D QC, former judge of the General Court, Court of Justice of the European Union, President of the Franco-British Lawyers’ Society
