Post-Brexit Options for the UK: New Legal Analysis

Date: 16 November 2018
Time: 9:30-17:00
Location:The Theatre, Peterhouse, Cambridge CB2 1RD

A workshop organised by the Public Policy SRI

The UK is experiencing a crisis on many levels – economic, political and constitutional – as it faces up to the implications of Brexit. Since June 2016 there has been much speculation on the likely effects of Brexit, but a failure to focus on the institutional detail of different scenarios. In this conference we will bring to bear the latest legal research on the implications of Brexit for trade, competition and regulation; the UK’s devolution settlement; and its constitution. There will also be a discussion of options around a second Brexit referendum.
