Brexit, the TCA and UK-EU Relations: One Year On

Wednesday 2 February 2022, 5.30-7pm UK time

2021 was a turbulent post-Brexit year, made all the more difficult by COVID. This webinar takes stock of the trading relationship broadly conceived between the UK and the EU after one year. There will be consideration of the legal and political relationship concerning services and goods, together with some of the key legal considerations concerning other aspects of the TCA and Withdrawal Agreement. The three contributors to the webinar are Professor Sarah Hall, Professor Martin Heneghan and Professor Paul Craig.
