End of the EU transition period and the implications for public procurement

9 Dec 2020 - WEBINAR

Will the European court justice have any jurisdiction over UK cases? will historical EU court judgements still apply to future UK challenges?

It’s almost impossible to predict what is ahead of us before the transition period is over but we can learn what is around the corner when it comes to implications for public procurement and case law. Join our webinar on 9 December to hear from Professor Sue Arrowsmith on the latest updates in the public procurement regulations, old and new case law, recently transcribed by her and available on THEMiS, plus direct awards and COVID-19 for procurement professionals.

Speaker

Professor Sue Arrowsmith, a member of the Government’s Procurement Transformation Advisory Panel, advising on the post-Brexit reform of the Procurement Regulations, and also of the Department of Trade’s Expert Trade Advisory Group, which is advising on the procurement aspects of trade negotiations with non-EU countries, is well positioned to provide advice and guidance.
