Theo Huckle QC to speak at Brexit and Human Rights: Better Protected In or Out?

14.11.17 | |


5.30pm Thursday 30 November 2017

Registration from 4.45pm

Welsh Government Building, Cathays Park, Cardiff CF10 3NQ

          

The White Paper on a Great Repeal Bill published earlier this year provided some clarity about how equality and human rights concerns will be addressed. For instance existing EU law in place at the point the UK leaves is to be preserved ‘wherever possible’. However what will be the impact of losing the Charter of Fundamental Rights? Will we be at risk of a future government passing laws which fall below the current standards of EU law? Will our future rights suffer from no longer following the European social rights agenda?

The Human Rights Lawyers’ Association and Public Law Wales invites you to join our expert panel of speakers to explore the challenges and benefits posed by Brexit in this specific context.

Speakers

Theo Huckle QC
