The constitutional implications of Brexit

Posted: 2 October 2017

What are the future ramifications of the Repeal Bill? How should Henry VIII clauses be used? We ask two experts from Middlesex University for their thoughts.

In this podcast, the Law Society’s Andrew McWhir speaks to two experts about the Constitutional implications of Brexit.

Professor Laurent Pech is Professor of European Law, Jean Monnet Chair of European Public Law and Head of the Law and Politics Department at Middlesex University London.

He specialises in EU Public Law and has lectured in a variety of subjects including EU Constitutional Law, EU Internal Market Law, EU Competition Law and European Human Rights Law. His research primarily focuses on challenges to the rule of law within the European legal space.

Dr Joelle Grogan is a lecturer and legal academic at Middlesex university.

Her research assessed EU compliance with the rule of law, with case study analysis of the EU as an actor in international trade negotiations, corporate taxation and the European Arrest Warrant. Working with Professor Sionaidh Dogulas-Scott, she completed two reports on EU citizenship rights in the UK and Ireland, as part of a large-scale research project funded by the European Commission.

The topics that they discuss are:

  • the future ramifications of the Repeal Bill,
  • whether limits should be imposed on the Government’s use of the Henry VIII clauses, and
  • what this all means for the border in Northern Ireland.

They also touch upon the future jurisdiction of the CJEU, the Customs Union, the Single Market, and the transfer of EU law into the British statue book.
