Studying EU Law in Scotland during and after Brexit

First Edition (Editors: Nicole Busby and Rebecca Zahn)

The idea for this book originated from a one-day seminar which was held at the University of Strathclyde in May 2017 as part of Engage with Strathclyde 2017 at which academics, students, practitioners and representatives from the Law Society of Scotland and the Faculty of Advocates met to discuss how best to teach EU law in Scotland during the Brexit negotiations and following the UK’s departure from the EU. The event was organised in collaboration with the Scottish Universities Legal Network on Europe (SULNE) and was generously funded by the Society of Legal Scholars.
