RightsUp Podcast #RightNow!-The UK Supreme Court Rules in Brexit

by | Jan 30, 2017

On 24 January 2017, the UK Supreme Court ruled in the case Miller and Dos Santos vs. Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union. The Court decided that the Government does not have a prerogative power to trigger Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty. Instead, an act of parliament will be needed to begin the process of the UK leaving the EU. In this episode, we bring back Professor Alison Young, an expert in constitutional law, to talk about the aftermath of this decision – what it means and what we can now expect from the Brexit process.

You can listen to the podcast here.

Join us in person or on Facebook Live tomorrow, 31 January, at 5:15 PM GMT, for a conversation on Brexit and human rights. Professor Alison Young will be discussing Brexit with Professors Paul Craig, Timothy Endicott, and Nick Barber.

Produced by: Dr Kira Allmann
