Blog: Attorneys general to reflect on Brexit impact on Irish and UK constitutions – Irish Legal News

The attorneys general for Ireland and Northern Ireland will join a panel offering reflections on the implications of the Brexit process for the constitutions of the UK and Ireland, and for relations between them, at a webinar tomorrow.

The webinar, hosted by the Trinity Centre for Constitutional Law and Governance and the British-Irish Chapter of the International Society of Public Law (ICON-S GBIE), marks the publication of The Brexit Challenge for Ireland and the United Kingdom: Constitutions Under Pressure.

The new book, edited by Oran Doyle of Trinity College Dublin, Aileen McHarg of the University of Durham, and Jo Murkens of the London School of Economics and Political Science, assesses the pressures exerted by Brexit, from legal, historical, and political perspectives.

Alongside Paul Gallagher SC and Dame Brenda King DCB, the webinar will hear from Mick Antoniw, the counsel general for Wales and the Welsh government minister for the constitution, and Sir Jonathan Jones QC, former Treasury solicitor and head of the UK Government Legal Service.

The discussion will be chaired by Aileen Kavanagh, professor of constitutional governance at Trinity College Dublin.

More information about tomorrow’s webinar, which takes place from 5.30pm to 7pm, is available from the TCD website.
