The University of Strathclyde, the Scottish Universities Legal Network on Europe (SULNE) and the Scottish Government are hosting an invite-only roundtable discussion on the impact of Brexit on the regulatory and legislative approaches to cross-border consumer protection and digital consumer rights.

The event will provide an opportunity for you to understand the Scottish Government’s position on the on-going UK-EU Negotiation and for some of Scotland’s key policy makers and advisers to hear from you on what you see as the key issues at stake. Crucially, it will also give you the opportunity to help develop further thinking on how Scotland and the UK can best protect consumer rights post-Brexit.  Following the event a SULNE e-book and position paper will be produced informed by the discussion.
