Praise for Brexit event

13 Mar


An event staged by the Faculty to examine Scotland and Brexit has been hailed a success.

An invited audience and specialist speakers enjoyed a day of expert analysis of legal issues raised by the Scottish Government’s paper, Scotland’s Place in Europe.

One person was impressed to the extent of describing the conference as “a fascinating event” while another thought it had been “excellent”, and a veteran of many Brexit events  believed that it had been “by a considerable margin, the most interesting and informative discussion of the many facets of Brexit I have attended.”

James Mure, QC, Convener of the Faculty’s International Committee, chaired proceedings, and he said: “The Faculty’s conference on Scotland’s options under Brexit was a great success. Speakers, guests and members of Faculty all gained from an open atmosphere of debate.”

Lord Carloway, the Lord President, gave a keynote address, which is available at

A full summary of the conference will be made available on the Faculty’s website in due course.
