Brexit Bitesize – SWALA update on the ramifications of leaving the EU

** Postponed **

Regrettably we have had to postpone the Brexit Bitesize seminar due to a lack of take-up, possibly due to the ongoing pandemic.  The seminar was intended to be a free event aimed at providing an accessible overview of the current implications of Brexit and to provide an opportunity to catch-up with colleagues.   We would still like to gauge the level of interest in trying to re-arrange this event and, if you would be interested in attending such an event  in the new year, please let us know by registering your interest by replying to this e-mail at admin@southwestadminlaw.org

Speakers and topics 

• Procurement – Laura Wisdom (Burges Salmon)
• Environmental and Planning – Nina Pindham (No 5 Chambers)
• Immigration (EU Settled Status) – Ashley Norman (Bevan Brittan)
• Competition – Matthew O’Regan (St John’s Chambers)
• Subsidy Control – David Owens (Bevan Brittan)

If this event is re-arranged, registration will be required even if you have previously registered to attend either the online or in-person event.

SWALA Survey

SWALA is keen to learn how it might do more to promote its objective of bringing together all practitioners with an interest in Administrative Law in the South West:

  • To promote the development of specialist expertise in administrative and public law in the South West of England.
  • To encourage and support the use of the local jurisdiction of the Administrative Court.
  • To provide a forum for discussion.
  • To encourage education and training.
  • To protect and promote the efficiency and capacity of Courts in the South West of England to deal with administrative and public law matters.

We would therefore be very grateful if you could take few minutes to complete our short online survey.
