Time: Thursday 11 November 2021 5.30pm to 6.30pm.
Location: Online webinar.
The Centre for Public Law, in conjunction with the Constitutional Law Matters project, will be hosting an event examining the Supreme Court’s recent judgment in the Treaty Incorporation Bill References (see here). Professor Alison Young and Professor Mark Elliott will speak about the case and there will be an opportunity to ask questions. The event will be chaired by Sir Patrick Elias.
In its judgment, the Court held that the Scottish Parliament had exceeded its legislative power when it enacted Bills seeking to incorporate the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child and the European Charter of Local Self-Government. The Supreme Court’s judgment raises a number of issues of constitutional significance concerning devolution, parliamentary sovereignty and the Human Rights Act 1998.
