The Supreme Court is expected to hand down its decision in the Miller case in January. In deciding what role, if any, Parliament has in triggering Article 50 and the UK's departure from the EU, the Court will deliver one of the most important constitutional law judgments in decades.

This rapid response event will provide opportunity to hear leading experts consider the constitutional and rule of law dimensions of the Supreme Court's judgment, and to reflect on the path ahead and the consequences of the decision for the UK. Bringing together panellists who have expressed a wide range of views about the High Court's decision of 3 November 2016, this event will be an outstanding opportunity to hear expert analysis of the Supreme Court's much-awaited decision.


  • Rt Hon Lord Judge, Former Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales


  • Prof Richard Ekins, University of Oxford and Policy Exchange's Judicial Power Project
  • Prof Graham Gee, University of Sheffield
  • Jessica Simor QC, Matrix Chambers
  • Prof Alison Young, University of Oxford


  • Lord Pannick QC, Blackstone Chambers

The event is convened by Dr Lawrence McNamara (Deputy Director) and Lucy Moxham (Associate Senior Research Fellow) at the Bingham Centre for the Rule of Law

Professor Robert McCorquodale, Director of BIICL, advised the 1st Interested Party (Pigney and Others), together with Helen Mountfield QC, Gerry Facenna QC, Tim Johnstone, David Gregory and Jack Williams (instructed by Bindmans LLP).
