Policy Exchange is delighted to invite you to a panel discussion of what Brexit means for judicial power in our constitution.  Reflecting on the controversial record of the Court of Justice of the European Union and on the recently announced litigation to block Her Majesty’s Government from exercising Article 50, the panel will also consider the implications of Brexit for how British judges are likely to act in the future.

The discussion will be chaired by Lord Judge, formerly Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales, and the panel consists of:

  • Dr G G H Beck, Barrister, 1 Essex Court (Chambers of The Rt Hon Sir Tony Baldry), former advisor to the European Scrutiny Committee of the House of Commons.
  • Professor Richard Ekins, University of Oxford and Director of the Judicial Power Project
  • Professor Carol Harlow QC (Hon.), FBA, London School of Economics (Emeritus)
  • Professor Simon Lee, Professor of Law and Director of Citizenship & Governance Research at the Open University, Fellow of St Edmund’s College, Cambridge, and Emeritus Professor of Jurisprudence, Queen’s University Belfast.

This event will take place on Thursday 21 July, with registration from 4.00pm.
