Events to discuss Brexit and the law

Fifty years of legal education in Leicester are being celebrated with public events this week showcasing aspects of Brexit and the Law.

In the wake of last week’s High Court decision to uphold parliamentary sovereignty, our Law School will explore the latest Brexit developments with leading speakers and a Question Time-style debate.

On Friday 11 November at 5.30pm, there is a free public lecture on the legal impact of any new EU-UK arrangement.

On Saturday 12 November from 2:30pm, leading EU experts from the Leicester Law School community will focus on Brexit and its Consequences during a Question Time-style discussion chaired by Emeritus Professor Robin White and introduced by Professor Paul Boyle, President and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Leicester.

Professor Francois Du Bois, Head of the Leicester Law School, said:  “We welcome the opportunity to engage with leading lawyers and academics to discuss the legal implications of what is a vexed political issue. The High Court ruling this month thrust the legal profession into a media furore and therefore these events at the University are timely as we assess the legal ramifications of Brexit.”
