The 2016 John Field Simms, Sr. Memorial Lectureship in Law will shed light on the political, legal and economic consequences about a matter that affects us all – Britian’s vote to leave the European Union.

For the first time, a member state may leave the EU, creating a turning point in history similar to South Carolina’s session in 1860. What impact will Brexit have on the UK and the EU?

Brexit is a labyrinth of new and complex legal procedures that may completely transform the constitutional history of the Western world. 

Professor Bruno Aguilera-Barchet of the King Juan Carlos University of Madrid will discuss "The Legal Labyrinth of Brexit" at 4:30 pm on September 7, 2016 at the UNM School of Law. This lecture is free and open to the public; parking at the event is free in the Law School “L” parking lot starting at 4:00 p.m.

Register online or RSVP to 505.277.8184.
