The UK Constitution and Implications of the Referendum*

 Tuesday 4th December, 7.30-8.30pm

The referendum in 2016 prompted a new debate about the role of The UK Constitution, the implications of the referendum and related developments. Since then, lawyers, politicians and voters have joined a national debate on many of these matters.

At Politeia’s next event with BPP Law School, speakers will include:

  • Lord Faulks QC, barrister and former Minister of State for Justice (2013-16).
  • Sir William Cash MP, former chair the House of Commons European Scrutiny Committee (2010-15), author of The European Constitution- A Political Timebomb (2003).
  • Sir Richard Aikens PC, Brick Court Chambers, former Lord Justice of Appeal (2008-15), Visiting Professor at King’s College London and Queen Mary University of London.

They will consider the wider picture and such points as:

  • What has happened constitutionally since the referendum?
  • How have questions arising- such as the triggering of Article 50- been, (or might be), dealt with?
  • What issues have been prompted, what are their legal implications and how were they raised and developed?
  • How have powers been separated between the people, parliament, the Executive and the Judiciary?

We would be very pleased if you were free to join us for this event. If so please RSVP. 

The event will take place on the 4th December 2018. It will be between 7.30pm-8.30pm, preceded by a drinks reception for guests attending from 7.00pm. If you would like to attend, please respond to this e-mail by writing to with your name, position and organisation, and we shall put you on the list.
