BIICL Event – The Common Fisheries Policy Post-Brexit


On Tuesday 12th September the British Institute of International and Comparative Law (BIICL) will host a discussion on how Brexit will impact upon the European Union’s Common Fisheries Policy (CFP). This is just one aspect of UK law reform that is presented with fundamental challenges by the Brexit process.

There is concern that the UK’s withdrawal from the EU will mean losing the many economic, social and employment benefits that the CFP provides. This event hopes to offer some understanding as to the future of the policy post-Brexit.

The debate is being held at the British Institute of International and Comparative Law (Charles Clore House, 17 Russell Square, London WC1B 5JP) and will run from 17:30-19:30. Registration will be open from 17:00.

The event will be chaired by Peter Oliver of Monckton Chambers.

The guest speakers will include: Daniel Owen of Fenners Chambers, Liane Veitch of ClientEarth and Professor Jill Wakefield of the University of Warwick.
