This webinar is an urgent meeting called at short notice to enable the Bars of England and Wales, Scotland and N. Ireland to discuss the serious challenges to the rule of law raised by the Internal Market Bill. The Law Society and the Bar Council produced a briefing paper setting out their concerns for international, domestic law (particularly judicial review) and devolution here. The IBA previously held a webinar on the domestic and international legal implications of the Internal Market Bill which can be viewed here
This webinar will concentrate on the domestic aspects and the role of the Bar in maintaining, protecting and standing up for the rule of law. The webinar will encompass half an hour of presentations from the eminent speakers and half an hour of questions for audience participants.
Lord Neuberger, Dominic Grieve QC and Joanna Cherry QC have agreed to speak with Baroness Helena Kennedy QC chairing the meeting, and introductory remarks from Jessica Simor QC.
