The Institute of European Law at the University of Birmingham is organising a day workshop on the impact of a possible exit of the United Kingdom from the EU. It addresses a number of questions regarding legal, economic and political issues in case of an “In or Out” referendum in the event of an elected Conservative or Conservative-led government in 2015.

The workshop aims at providing participants with an understanding of impacts of a possible exit, focussing on consequences for United Kingdom and English law in its political and economic contexts and to enhance the understanding of the current legal situation.

There will be contributions by EU lawyers, constitutional lawyers, public lawyers and civil servants.

The workshop takes place on Wednesday, 25th June 2014 from 10:30 to 17:00 at Birmingham Law School on University of Birmingham’s Edgbaston Campus.

The event is free to attend for University of Birmingham students and staff. There is a registration fee of £10 for students from other universities and academics and £55 for practitioners.
