On 26 April 2017 Prof. Piet Eeckhout holds the next LLM lecture, entitled 'The Laws of Brexit'.

About the lecture

Title: 'The Laws of Brexit'

The UK referendum vote to leave the EU was a seismic shock, in political, constitutional and legal terms. The lecture will study the shock’s aftermath, both for the UK and for the EU. The Brexit process is governed by its own laws, which include a political process which looks irreversible, but also a fascinating array of legal questions,  in EU and UK law. The importance of those questions to the Brexit outcome will be examined, including whether there is a way back.

Registration is free. For non-LLM students, please confirm attendance before Friday 21-04-2017 to ms Berezhna.
