The Ministry of Justice and the British Institute of International and Comparative Law would like to invite you to an event examining the scope and nature of the EU's power to act on matters of civil judicial cooperation, part of the EU Balance of Competences Review.
The Review is an audit of what the EU does, and how it affects government and the general public in the UK. The Civil Judicial Cooperation Review is led by the Ministry of Justice and seeks evidence of where competence lies and what that means for UK interest.

The format of the event will be a plenary session followed by group discussion, and then a number of themed workshops for you to continue the debate. Note-takers will record oral evidence, which will be shared with attendees after the event to confirm accuracy.
