Publication of leading EU lawyers’ Opinion on Article 50 TEU

17 Feb 2017

Gerry Facenna QC and former Head of Monckton Chambers Sir Jeremy Lever KCMG QC are two of the five authors of a legal opinion published today by “the People’s Challenge”, a group who took part as an interested party in the recent Supreme Court case initiated by Gina Miller. The Opinion, whose authors also include former CJEU Judge Sir David Edward KCMG PC QC and former CJEU Advocate General Sir Francis Jacobs KCMG PC QC, considers the United Kingdom’s constitutional requirements for withdrawing from the EU and the contentious issue of whether, under EU law, a notification given by a Member State of its intention to leave the EU may subsequently be revoked.
