This conference will look at the myriad of ways Brexit will impact public law in the years to come, as domestic legislation and litigation fills the gap left by EU law. Topics include the Future Relationship Act of 2020, trade, immigration and the EU Settlement Status Scheme (EUSS), social security coordination, enforceable provisions of the Withdrawal Act, retained EU law, and more.
