Scottish Universities offer Brexit advice to Third Sector
A network of legal academics is looking to hear from third sector organisations on their advice requirements as the UK prepares to leave the European Union.
SULNE is a network of all of the Scottish University’s Law Schools, formed following the UK’s EU referendum, to provide legal advice, opinion and education for all stakeholders on Scotland’s current and future relationship with the EU.
The main objectives of SULNE are:
To provide legal advice and opinion to government, civil society and other institutions engaged in difficult policy choices concerning Brexit;
To facilitate an informed public understanding of the law regarding current constitutional arrangements; and
To lead on legal education strategy for Scottish Law Schools following the ‘leave’ vote.
The network is co-chaired by Professors Jo Shaw and Noreen Burrows. The network's core membership include over 80 legal academics and postgraduate research students from Scotland's Universities, with expertise in EU law, international law, constitutional law and, across all fields of law that will be implicated by Brexit. They have also published a series of position papers relating to the EU and various areas of interest to the third sector.
They would now like to know what else and how else they can work with the third sector and support them on the legal issues surrounding Brexit. To develop their approach they have produced a new survey which can be sent directly to [email protected].
For further enquiries or expressions of interest please contact: Maria Fletcher, SULNE Director, [email protected] or Nina Miller Westoby, SULNE Strategic Development Officer, [email protected].
