Politeia’s Legal Series 2021 with BPP University
For many people the Brexit process in the years after the 2016 EU referendum involved differences fought out in parliament, government and the courts, about precedent and law.
These differences will be addressed in Politeia’s 2021 series with BPP which will consider the theme: The Constitutional Role of the Judiciary in Brexit: Controversial in Practice, Right in Principle? There will be three panel events. The speakers will include lawyers representing the two sides in the court hearings.
On Friday, 23rd April 2021 (6.30 –7.30pm) the series will open with: The Constitutional Role of the Judiciary – Precedents and Position.
Guest speakers from the legal profession will include:
- Tom Hickman QC, Barrister at Blackstone Chambers
- Richard Howell, Barrister at Brick Court Chambers
- The Rt. Hon. David Jones MP, Deputy Chairman, European Research Group; Member, Public Administration and Constitutional Affairs Committee; DExEU Minister of State (2016-2017) and Secretary of State for Wales (2012-2014)
Speakers will consider the constitutional role of the judiciary in the U.K.’s constitution and the Brexit process with reference to earlier but equally ‘political’ questions decided by the Courts.
