Time: 5.30-7pm (Online)

Public Law Wales and the Independent Monitoring Authority for Citizens’ Rights Agreement (IMA)  are hosting a webinar on recent citizens’ rights litigation and the IMA’s legislation monitoring work.

Contributors include:

  • Rhys Davies, General Counsel at the IMA
  • Robert Palmer KC of Monckton Chambers
  • Emma Mockford of Brick Court Chambers
  • Marie Demetriou KC of Brick Court Chambers
  • Lisa Salkeld, Senior Legal Adviser at the IMA

The citizens’ rights agreements provide a new area of law and potential for public law challenge.

Understanding who the IMA are and how they can use their unique powers to hold the UK, Welsh, Scottish and Gibraltar Governments and the Northern Ireland Executive as well as other public bodies to account is important for all public lawyers.

Breach of the UK-EU withdrawal agreement or EEA EFTA separation agreement could be a crucial part of your advice to a client.

The number of cases based on interpretation of the citizens’ rights agreements are growing as the European Settled Status Scheme takes effect.

What to expect 

Join Public Law Wales and the IMA for this free webinar to find out more about the work of the IMA on citizens’ rights post-Brexit, including their recent litigation against the Home Office and on the Charter for Fundamental Human Rights and legislation monitoring. It will help you understand how the IMA brings judicial review claims based on breach of the UK-EU withdrawal agreement and EEA EFTA separation agreement and common issues in legislation that have been found.
