Elizabeth Chan, an associate in the London office of Three Crowns, will be a featured speaker on “Public International Law in the UK, post-Brexit,” a webinar taking place on Tuesday, 23 June at 1 pm BST/8 am EDT/8 pm HKT.  She will discuss “The UK’s post-Brexit investment policy: a (lost) opportunity for novel design choices?”

One of the key pro-Brexit arguments was that leaving the EU would allow the UK to “take back control” of its investment policy. Chan’s presentation will explore current indications of what the UK plans to do once it regains this control and argue that Brexit would be an opportunity lost were the UK not to seize this moment to consider future investment policy in a comprehensive and creative way.

With COVID-19-related news on top of the agenda, Brexit has largely taken a back seat. Yet, with the transition period due (at the time of writing) to end in just seven months, it is more important than ever to consider the implications for public international law (PIL) pursuant to the UK’s departure from the European Union. Presented by “new voices” in PIL, members of the Young Public International Law Group (YPILG) Board, this webinar will explore a wide range of perspectives on the topic of PIL in the UK, post-Brexit.

The speakers’ short presentations, including Chan’s and those outlined below, will be followed by a Q&A session.

  • Post-Brexit EU-UK dispute settlement: critical and contentious issues
  • Post-Brexit claims by individuals under public international law
  • Prospect of Brexit-related investment-treaty claims
  • The role of UK courts in investment-treaty arbitration post-Brexit
