CPD Webinar : Anneli Howard discusses the implications of the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill 2017 with Practical Law – available free to view

05 Sep 2017 | by Anneli Howard

In conjunction with Practical Law, Anneli Howard has produced a  42-minute video in which she examines the contents and implications of the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill 2017-19; commonly referred to as the Great Repeal Bill.  She concentrates on five areas:

  • What the repeal of the European Communities Act 1972 will mean in practice for acquired rights.
  • The practical effects of the Government’s “cut and paste” of existing European law into our domestic system
  • How judges are going to be expected to interpret and apply EU-derived law going forward and what relevance ECJ rulings and Commission decisions will have post-Brexit.
  • Explaining the role and scope of the Henry VIII clauses in the Bill to modify existing primary legislation
  • The potential for future challenges down the line

There is an accompanying transcript to select the various topics  and a CPD questionnaire if you want to earn CPD points.
