Scottish Universities Lawyers Network on Europe to launch this week in Glasgow

The Scottish Universities Lawyers Network on Europe (SULNE) is being launched this week at the University of Glasgow.

This is a joint initiative from Edinburgh Law School, the University of Edinburgh's Europa Institute and Glasgow School of Law.

The network is to be co-chaired by Professors Jo Shaw (Edinburgh) and Noreen Burrows (Glasgow) and its core membership will consist of legal academics from Scotland's universities. Expressions of interest have been received from over 50 colleagues representing 8 different institutions.  

The creation of the network was prompted by the outcome of the referendum on the UK's membership of the EU held on 23rd June. One of the main objectives of SULNE will be to provide legal expertise on Scotland's future position following the vote to leave the EU.

The launch meeting will be held at the University of Glasgow on Friday 8 July.
