At the start of the Brexit process, the role of the UK Parliament in triggering Article 50 TEU was heavily and very publicly contested. Since the UK Supreme Court's judgment in Miller confirmed Parliament's role in this regard, concern has shifted to the extent to which Parliament can influence the nature of Brexit.
This seminar considers the influence the UK Parliament is exerting and the challenges it is facing in doing so. A particular focus is placed on the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill (so-called 'Great Repeal Bill' currently before Parliament) and the work of parliamentary Select Committees.
