Exiting the EU and its implications

Third Jean Monnet Chair event will explore the possible constitutional consequences of the UK leaving the EU.
by John Stevenson

Under the aegis of the Jean Monnet Chair in European Law, The City Law School will host a free panel discussion titled, "UK exit from the EU and its Constitutional Implications", at 6pm, on Thursday 19th February in Room A130 of the College Building.

The panel will be chaired by Sir Konrad Schiemann QC (Former Judge at the European Court of Justice) and will feature Professor Sir Alan Dashwood QC (part-time Professor of Law at City); Sir David Edward QC (Former Judge at the European Court of Justice); Lord John Kerr (Former UK Permanent Representative to EU and Head of the Diplomatic Service); and Professor Sionaidh Douglas-Scott (University of Oxford).

nullJean Monnet Chair in European Law at The City Law School, Professor Panos Koutrakos, will welcome all participants to this event. He said:

"The Prime Minister's pledge to hold an 'in-out' referendum by the end of 2017 raises questions about the legal, economic, and policy implications of a UK exit from the EU. We are delighted to welcome our distinguished guests in order to shed much needed light on some aspects of the UK's relationship with the EU. We look forward to a lively and informed debate."

This panel discussion will be the third event organised under the aegis of the Jean Monnet Chair. The first event, a lecture delivered by Mr Angelos Pangratis, the EU Ambassador to the World Trade Organisation on 2nd December 2014, was titled "The paradox of multuculturalism and the WTO - the role of the EU in the WTO". On 26th January, the panel discussion, "Benefits and EU Law - The law behind the story", drew attention to social assistance and benefits claimed by EU citizens in the UK.
