OU Annual Law Lecture 2017: Brexit – a rocky path to ‘sunlit uplands’ and a chance to win your place!

Sir Nicholas Forwood QC

The OU Law School is hosting leading EU judge, Sir Nicholas Forwood QC, to speak about his career and challenges in EU competition law, take questions, and share insights on Brexit at ‘The Annual Law Lecture 2017: Brexit – a rocky path to ‘sunlit uplands’’.

‘As the government triggers Article 50, what does this mean for you? What will be the future of Britain’s economy? Should EU law be re-written? As quoted in the press, “additional business investment would probably be frozen too if we seem to be heading in the direction of a ‘cliff-edge’ Brexit”.

Join us in a topical talk on Brexit, a pivotal moment for Britain to befall the European Union in its 59-year history, at The Open University Law School annual law lecture taking place on Tuesday 25 April, London. Sir Nicholas Forwood QC, Europe’s most influential Judge and now EU Counsel in Brussels will ask what are the perils of Brexit, how can the ‘cliff-edge’ be avoided? Limited places available so book online now.’

Furthermore, the Law Lecture will host the awards ceremony for the Tom Bingham Memorial Essay Competition 2017, founded by the OULS’s former chair Amy Woolfson. The 3 winners of the competition will be announced on the night and presented with their awards, therefore this event provides the perfect opportunity to recognise and celebrate the winners achievements.

The event will be held at Church House Westminster, London on Tuesday April 25th in between 17:30 and 21:00. Tickets are £30 per person and we advise booking as early as possible as places are limited.
