Hertford alumni & the Gina Miller case

Friday, 15 September 2017 17:30

Hertford has a fantastic community of lawyers: those who studied Law at the college and the many more who turned to Law after graduation. The college is proud of the impact you, our alumni, have had and continue to have on the world around us – and we would like to offer you an opportunity to celebrate your many and varied achievements at a special event this September. 

The recent ‘Gina Miller case’, which tackled the question of Parliament’s role in Brexit and Article 50, had Hertford alumni on both sides of the argument. On Friday 15 September, Lord Pannick QC and Jack Williams will join us to share their experience preparing the applicants' cases, while Rowena Collins-Rice will talk about her role preparing the government’s case. Hertford’s Law tutor, Professor Alison Young will oversee the discussion and will add her own perspective of participating in the media coverage. The panel will also be taking questions from the audience.

The discussion will take place in the Indian Institute building, followed by drinks and dinner in Hall.

17:30pm Discussion with Lord Pannick QC, Rowena Collins-Rice, Jack Williams and Professor Alison Young in the Oxford Martin School Lecture Theatre (Indian Institute)
