The UK in Europe, Scotland in the UK? The Implications of the EU Referendum
Date: 25th April 2016
Venue: Senate Room, Collins Building, University of Strathclyde
Debate over the outcome of the EU referendum has intensified since Prime Minister David Cameron succeeded in negotiating a deal with the EU Council, and the referendum is now set for 23 June. Should we choose to leave, the UK's relationship with the EU will of course alter fundamentally. However, should we choose to remain part of the EU, that relationship would also change quite markedly as it is clear that some complex legal and practical changes will need to occur in order to give life to the PM's renegotiation package.
This event, hosted jointly by the University of Strathclyde Law School and the Bingham Centre for the Rule of Law, will invite two expert panels - chaired by James Wolffe QC, Dean of the Faculty of Advocates, and Dr Sylvie Da Lomba, lecturer in European Law at Strathclyde Law School - to discuss the legal implications of a vote to remain in, and of a vote to leave, the EU. Discussants include Professor Jo Shaw, Alyn Smith MEP, Professor Drew Scott, Professor Michael Keating and Christine O'Neill (chairman, Brodies) and will cover topics ranging from the significance of the Prime Minister's renegotiation package, to the place of Scotland in, and out, of the European Union, to the practical effects for lawyers and their clients of the referendum outcome.
Tea and coffee will be available at registration, and the event will be followed by a wine reception.
