On Thursday 1 March Mr Dominic Grieve QC MP delivered the 2018 CELS Mackenzie-Stuart Lecture entitled "What Price Sovereignty? Brexit and Human Rights" at the Faculty of Law, University of Cambridge.

In his lecture, Mr Grieve reflected on the steps being taken to prepare from the UK withdrawal from the EU following the referendum.  He especially focused on the protection of human rights, considering the interaction of the European Convention on Human Rights, the Charter of Fundamental Rights, and the UK's own Human Rights act, and how the government might change the protection of human rights as part of the implementation of the EU Withdrawal Bill.

The Mackenzie-Stuart Lecture, sponsored by Shearman & Sterling, is an annual public lecture hosted by the Centre for European Legal Studies (CELS) in honour of Lord Mackenzie-Stuart, the first British judge to be appointed to the European Court of Justice.

More information about this lecture, including other recorded formats, a transcript, and photographs from the event, is available from the Mackenzie-Stuart Lecture pages on the CELS website.
