Brexit seminar series

We're hosting a series of Brexit seminars for members where leading authorities from the Scottish legal profession and the academic community will analyse the UK’s withdrawal from the EU.

The next seminar will take place on Thursday 18 May, from 5.30pm for 6- 8.30pm at the Law Society of Scotland’s offices at Atria One, 144 Morrison Street, Edinburgh, EH3 8EX and will focus on the topic of employment rights issues post-Brexit. If you are unable to attend in person there is also the opportunity to live stream the presentations and questions section as a webinar.

We regret to announce that this seminar has now been postponed to a later date. Further information will be available in due course and all registrants will shortly receive a cancellation email and full refund.
