The Constitutional Law Matters project held its first online webinar which was chaired by Professor Alison Young (University of Cambridge) with panellists Professor Mark Elliott (University of Cambridge), Professor Meg Russell (University College London and Constitution Unit) and Professor David Howarth (University of Cambridge).  

Constitutional Law Matters held its first webinar on 20 October 2021 with the topic of discussion centred around the question ‘Who’s in charge of the Westminster Parliament?’. In what was our first in a series of events about the UK constitution, the event saw the panellists discuss parliamentary sovereignty in varied contexts, ranging from what it means and its consequences for the UK constitution. Parliamentary sovereignty from a political perspective was also explored, the balance between the legislature and the executive, the events surrounding Brexit in 2019 and the work of MPs. A video recording of the event is now available to watch on YouTube.
