Description

Britain and Europe - a constructive way forward: The United Kingdom and the European Union - a new framework

The consequences of the British voters’ decision to leave the European Union and the future relationship between the UK and the EU remain uncertain. We believe it is essential to look beyond the present turmoil and to address how concerns of both the UK and the EU can be accommodated for in order to successfully move forward. Therefore, within the framework of a seminar series held during spring 2017, we intend to discuss the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead with the ambition to generate a constructive dialogue.


The Stockholm School of Economics and Vinge law firm hereby invites you to the third seminar in the series.

Speakers: Professor Sir Alan Dashwood QC and Mr Alastair Sutton

Topic: “The United Kingdom and the European Union – a new framework”

Discussant: Adjunct Professor Erik Lagerlöf, Vinge law firm and Stockholm School of Economics

The seminar will be followed by a question and answer session and a drinks reception.

Please register to attend the seminar, no later than Friday 21 April.


The speakers:

Professor Sir Alan Dashwood QC has a 40-year career in EU law that spans most forms of legal practice – as an advocate, scholar, teacher, author, editor and a senior EU civil servant. He has been Director in the Legal Service of the Council of the European Union, Professor of EU law at Cambridge University and he has advised and represented the British government on numerous occasions. Professor Dashwood has been extensively involved in the Brexit process and has given advice to both public and private bodies.

Mr Alastair Sutton has been immersed in EU Law for nearly 40 years, as an EU official and as a practitioner. His practice is primarily advisory and covers a broad spectrum of EU law issues, in particular the internal and external law of the Single Market. Mr Sutton was the legal advisor to the Commission Vice President responsible for the launch of the Single Market project between 1985 and 1990 and his legal practice over the last 20 years has reflected this experience. Mr Sutton has also negotiated multilateral and bilateral trade agreements and he has advised a number of governments on EU law related issues.

Adjunct Professor Erik Lagerlöf has been involved with EU law as an academic, practitioner and EU civil servant for over 10 years. With an academic background from Cambridge University, EUI and Harvard Law School, Professor Lagerlöf is also a barrister and he has worked as legal secretary to both the Swedish and British judge at the European Court of Justice. He is currently a senior associate at Vinge law firm and Adjunct Professor of law at the Stockholm School of Economics as well as a Visiting Fellow at St Edmund’s College (Cambridge University). Professor Lagerlöf publishes and advises on Brexit related issues.
