Human Rights Reform: Scotland’s place in Brexit

23 February 17

Law Society of Scotland/Glasgow Caledonian University event

Venue: Glasgow Caledonian University Hamish Wood Building, Cowcaddens Road, Glasgow

Time: 5.30-8.30pm

The Law Society of Scotland is partnering with Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) to host the second in a series of Brexit-themed seminars.

An expert panel from the legal profession and academic community will examine the potential impact of the UK vote to leave the EU on human rights, including the consequent withdrawal from the EU Charter of Fundamental Human Rights on equalities and the public and the media’s role in reporting these issues.

Speakers Nicole Busby, Professor of Labour Law and Head of School at the University of Strathclyde, Dr Peter Geoghegan, writer and lecturer in journalism at the University of the West of Scotland, and Anthony Speaight QC, barrister at Pump Court Chambers in London will lead discussions at the event chaired by Michael Clancy, Director of Law Reform at the Law Society of Scotland.

The event is free and the speeches will be broadcast live on the Society’s Facebook page, with a recording available afterwards.
