Welcome to a seminiar on Civil Judicial Co-operation Post-Brexit
The Stockholm School of Economics and Vinge law firm hereby invites you to the sixth seminar in the series Britain and Europe – a constructive way forward
The consequences of the British voters’ decision to leave the European Union and the future relationship between the UK and the EU remain uncertain. We believe it is essential to address concerns of both the UK and the EU and consider how companies and individuals will be affected by Brexit. Within the framework of this continuing seminar
series, we discuss the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead with the ambition to generate a constructive dialogue.
