Faculty of Advocates Brexit Conference

The Lord President, Lord Carloway, has given a speech at the Faculty of Advocates Brexit Conference.

In his keynote address at the event on 10 March 2017, the Lord President outlines the areas of EU substantive law which have been litigated recently in the appellate Divisions of the Court of Session and the settled principles of interpretation which the court has adopted towards them. Lord Carloway also considers the possible legal effects of Scotland’s prospective membership of the European Free Trade Association and accession to the European Economic Area Agreement, and looks at the legal consequences of the proposed Great Repeal Bill, which the UK Government intends to introduce following notification under article 50.
