This talk will mainly focus on the provisions contained in Article 50 of The Treaty on European Union and what they mean. In the light of the decision by the Supreme Court, we also hope to provide an opportunity for discussion on the implications of the decision for Britain leaving Europe. In addition exploring the underlying issue of Constitutional Law relating to the role of Parliament and the Royal Prerogative in making decisions which has been made clearer by the Supreme Court.

Andrew Agnew is currently studying on the Postgraduate Diploma in Professional Legal Practice at the University of Dundee, having graduated in 2016 in dual Scots and English law. Andrew’s 4th year honours dissertation focused on the procedural mechanism of Article 50 Treaty on European Union – the withdrawal clause, under the supervision of Dr Jacques Hartmann. Alongside his studies, Andrew has undertaken placements within local government, the Civil Service and the Westminster Parliament.
