JUSTICE Scotland is delighted to host an event to discuss the legal and constitutional implications of the outcome of the Referendum in September 2014. Regardless of what way the country votes, there is certain to be further constitutional change.
We are delighted to welcome Mr Jim Naughtie, presenter of Radio 4’s flagship Today programme to Chair the event.
From those advocating Union and a no vote, we will have Douglas Alexander MP who will speak to the benefits of Scotland remaining part of the United Kingdom.
Speaking in favour of Independence and a yes vote on 18th September 2014 we will have the Cabinet Secretary forJustice, Mr Kenny MacAskill who will speak to the new constitutional landscape should there be a yes vote for Independence.
The event is intended for all those interested in how Scotland’s constitution will look after the historic vote of 18th September 2014: practising solicitors and advocates; academics and politicians. The event will canvass those issues ofsome importance for the constitution but have hitherto been overlooked:
- Scotland’s place in the world order
- Scotland’s relationship with London
- Scottish Courts and the Scottish Government
- The role of the Lord Advocate
The event will be chaired by Jim Naughtie, presenter of Radio 4’s flagship Today programme
- Kenny MacAskill MSP, Cabinet Secretary for Justice
- Douglas Alexander MP, Shadow Foreign Secretary
Our invited audience will be encouraged to contribute to the discussion.
JUSTICE Scotland is grateful to Brodies LLP for hosting this event.
