The third annual Sir Jeremy Lever lecture was held on Friday 14th February, to celebrate the career of Sir Jeremy Lever KCMG, QC, a pioneer of both the practice and academic study of competition law in Europe.
The lecture titled “Europe – The baseless fabric of a vision?” was given by The Rt Hon Sir David Edward KCMG, QC and chaired by The Rt Hon The Lord Hope of Craighead KT, FRSE, PC.
The Rt Hon Lord Hope of Craighead KT, FRSE, PC opened the lecture with remarks that Sir Jeremy Lever KCMG QC “can truly be said to have been a pioneer. ..When he began European Community law was far from fashionable. But he saw that it had a future, and under his leadership and inspiration Monkton has become the leading set for that subject in London.”
