The Scottish Universities Legal Network on Europe: Position Papers

The United Kingdom’s referendum vote to leave the European Union raises many legal questions for Scotland and the other UK jurisdictions about the implementation and implications of Brexit. One initiative that aims to consider these questions is the Scottish Universities Legal Network on Europe.

As explained on its website, SULNE is “jointly led by the University of Edinburgh School of Law and Europa Institute, the University of Glasgow School of Law and the University of Strathclyde Law School in partnership with all the Scottish Universities” to “provide legal expertise and advice on Scotland and the UK’s future position…for instance by inputting into the work of the Scottish Government’s Standing Council on Europe, publishing expert and focussed position papers and briefings and making these freely available and producing ‘citizen focussed information’.”

In relation to those roles, a number of Position Papers were prepared for the Standing Council on Europe in relation to “Social Protections and Human Rights”. I had input to two of them, on “Consumer Rights” (PDF) and “Environment, energy and sustainability” (PDF), although the majority of the credit for these papers must go to Lorna Richardson (Edinburgh, on Consumer Rights) and the team of Morgera, Cardesa-Salzmann, McHarg, Geelhoed and Ntona (Strathclyde, on Environment).

The papers should speak for themselves. I (or rather, we) hope you find them useful.
