Topics for discussion

Representatives from the Law Society and the Bar Council give evidence to the Members of the EU Justice Sub-Committee as it continues taking evidence in its ongoing Brexit related inquiry into Civil Justice Cooperation and the Jurisdiction of the Court of Justice of the European Union. Members hope to hear the legal profession's views on the importance and value of EU Civil Justice legislation designed to foster cross-border cooperation in the field of civil and family, and to explore the alternative mechanisms under which existing cooperation can be maintained once the UK leaves the EU.
