Lord Lisvane, Sir Robert Rogers, is the leading expert on parliamentary democracy, and served as Clerk of the House of Commons from October 2011 until August 2014. He currently sits in the House of Lords as a crossbench parliamentarian. He was involved in every aspect of the procedural and committee work of Parliament during his career. He is co-author of the standard textbook How Parliament Works, now in its 7th edition, and author of two parliamentary miscellanies: Order! Order! (2010) and Who Goes Home? (2012). Lord Lisvane was one of the first to call for parliamentary approval for Brexit and suggested a second referendum was needed in July.
Visiting Lincoln Fellow in Law, Graham Child was a practicing solicitor and partner at Slaughter & May, where he negotiated and advised on contracts from an EU law point of view and involved with litigation before the EU Court and Commission. He was co-author with Christopher Bellamy of the early editions of Bellamy and Child, EU law of competition. He was a stagiaire in the legal Service of the Commission in the early part of his career and later a stagiaire in the cabinet of Judge Edward at the CJ EU, and thus expertly placed to discuss the effect of Brexit on EU law.
Daniel Kozelko (Bachelor of Civil Law) will discuss the implication of Brexit for the doctrine of subsidiarity, and the prospective response of other supra-national legal bodies to the UK including the European Court of Human Rights and the Council of Europe. Daniel is interested in possible repeal of human rights-based statutes post-Brexit,and was previously a legal researcher at Blackstone Chambers and Landmark Chambers. He completed his undergraduate degree at the University of Cambridge, graduating with a double first-class honours.
