London meeting: The Implications of UK Trade Negotiations for Environmental Law after Brexit
6pm (5.30pm registration) - 7.30pm
You are invited to attend this early evening session on Brexit: Trade and the Environment in London and via videolink across the UK
The context for UK's environmental law could completely change following a UK withdrawal from the EU. The UK's trade arrangements with the rest of the world and any new trade agreements are likely to drive the way the UK restructures its international relationships, which could have fundamental consequences for environmental regulation and policy priorities. This seminar explores the interaction between trade law and environment issues. Find out about how environmental issues are currently dealt with under WTO law and trade agreements including the TTIP, hot issues, and how things might develop in the future.
Our speakers and their topics:
· Professor Joanne Scott, UCL - WTO law and environmental issues
· Christophe Bondy, Volterra Fietta - Trade deals and the environment
· Stephen Tromans QC - the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP)
· Dorothy Livingston, Herbert Smith Freehills – will join the panel discussion
The Meeting will be chaired by Tom Burke, UKELA Patron
