Professor Adam Lazowski from the Westminster Law School gave oral evidence to the European and External Relations Committee of the Scottish Parliament about the implications of the UK potentially leaving the EU.

The Committee is conducting an enquiry into the legal and political aspects of EU withdrawal. During the session held on 17 December 2015 Professor Lazowski argued that the withdrawal from the European Union was technically possible though it would take years to accomplish and it would be a resource thirsty exercise.

Professor Lazowski publishes extensively on various legal aspects of EU exit. His monograph on this topic is forthcoming in 2016 (Edward Elgar Publishing).

Watch the evidence session below.

Professor Adam Lazowski will give a talk as part of the Westminster Talks series about Flying High: Passenger Rights, European Demos and Legitimacy of the Court of Justice on 3 February 2016 at Regent Campus. The event is free for Westminster staff, students as well as the public to attend. Book your place now.
