UK Association for European Law

Welcome to UKAEL!

Upcoming Events:

We are in the process of planning an exciting programme of events for the autumn and winter.

Our popular Student Evening – EU Law in Practice: A Discussion with EU Law Professionals will take place on Tuesday, 11 October 2022 from 6-8pm, again generously hosted by Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP.

This is an evening where we invite students, trainee solicitors and pupil barristers to an evening of short talks on practising EU Law. This is an informal occasion to meet EU Law professionals and fellow EU Law students. The presentations will address the practice of EU Law post Brexit, in different sectors of the professional world. Speakers will cover typical work scenarios and career patterns in their field and will answer any questions. The meeting will be followed by a reception. More details nearer the time.

Our first webinar of the autumn – Collective Redress for Competition Law Breaches in the EU – Emerging Issues – will take place on 13 October, 5.30-7pm on Zoom.

 The webinar will explore the following issues:

– strengths and weaknesses of the UK as against other national regimes

– can consumers take on the tech giants?

– managing multi-layer/umbrella pass-on issues

– opting-out, opting-in and aggregate damages
