What does Brexit mean for the Manchester legal community? Are we going to see far more Happy Mondays, or will our refrain be “Heaven Knows I’m Miserable Now”?

How do Manchester practitioners apply our progressive and even radical heritage to make a success of the challenges of Brexit, fiercely arguing to retain universal international legal values, at a time when the political zeitgeist seems to be increasingly inward-looking.

Speakers include: 
Fergus Randolph QC (Brick Court Chambers London & Brussels) Leading EU and competition law barrister. Where are we up to with Brexit legal changes? 
Hugh Mercer QC (Essex Court Chambers London & Brussels) Leading international barrister and EU expert & Chairman of the European Circuit of the Bar. Legal rights: net loss or gain? 
Professor Alastair Sutton (Barrister Brick Court London & Brussels) expert in the EU institutions and EU law. UK relations on trade and investment with third countries after Brexit & WTO. 
Sarah Crowther QC (Outer Temple Chambers London) Specialist in private international law and personal injury. Henry VIII Powers: Legislative tyranny or housekeeping? 
Abigail Holt (Cobden House Chambers Manchester) Barrister specialist in civil litigation and practitioner in Immigration law. EC citizens’ rights and potential wrongs. 
Manchester University academic TBC.
