Legal Professional Network at Sackers, London: Brexit, what happens next for Businesses and Individuals?

Alumni are invited to join us at Sackers in the heart of the City of London for the second gathering of our Legal Professional Network. We’ll be joined by experts in International Trade and European Public Law to discuss the profound legal implications of Brexit for businesses and individuals, taking an informative but accessible look at what happens next. There will also be plenty of opportunties for networking with your fellow Hull Alumni. Refreshments will be provided. To book, contact Jeni Weatherill on by 12pm on Thursday 1 March.

Brexit, what happens next for Businesses and Individuals?
with Emeritus Professor Patrick Birkinshaw, Pauline Wade and James Turner QC
Sackers and Partners, London | Thursday 1 March | 18:00

to join us on the evening please book your place here

The implications of Brexit could not be further reaching, with changes to the way we govern ourselves, the way we conduct business with other countries, and the legal structures that protect our ways of living and working. Instead of going over the old arguments of leave and remain, we invite you to join us for a conversation about how we approach the future.
