Cambridge Conference on EU law on 8th September

Celebrations will focus on an anniversary conference which will look at the challenges facing the European Union in the future. This will be hosted by the Cambridge Law Faculty on 8th September 2017 and will include presentations from Cambridge law faculty members, Advocate Generals at the Court of Justice, as well as speakers from the professional diplomatic worlds. It will take account of a wide range of perspectives in considering the numerous current challenges facing the European Union, to mention only a few; Brexit, US elections, refugee crisis, immigration and I could go on….

If you have a particular expertise and perspective and would like your name to be included with those of our illustrious speakers, here’s your chance, as we are reserving 2 places on the panels for our alumni .
