Brexit Update

Implications for law and practice in Scotland

Negotiations between the UK and EU on a Brexit deal continue, and the final outcome is uncertain. However, some of the implications of Brexit for law and practice are now becoming clearer. This seminar, held on 26 March 2018, looked at ways in which the current and future legislative frameworks in Scotland are likely to be affected by whatever final arrangements are reached between the UK and the EU. The event featured leading legal experts who highlighted the possible consequences for specific subject areas. It also considered the implications for law and government from the EU (Withdrawal) Bill in its final form, after its lengthy passage through the UK Parliament. The programme also included an overview of the current state of the negotiations,
