Brexit is big challenge for family lawyers in Scotland

Rachael Kelsey

One of Scotland’s leading family law practitioners has warned that Brexit will have major implications for that area of the law and legal practice.

Rachael Kelsey, director of SKO Family Law Specialists said: “Over the last decade family lawyers in Scotland have become properly European lawyers – all of our basic jurisdictional, recognition and enforcement rules emanate from the EU. This isn’t just in international cases, either, this is in our domestic law; in Scottish cases. This may well change next year.”

Ms Kelsey is speaking at a major ‘Brexit Update’ seminar, which is taking place in Edinburgh on Monday 26 March.

She will be looking at the issues that family lawyers need to know now about the EU Withdrawal Bill. Other speakers will be looking at the likely impact of Brexit on consumer, family, environmental, and trade law and legislation in Scotland.

The conference is organised by Public Policy Events in association with Scottish Legal News. For full details and to book places, visit here.

‘Early Bird’ discounts available for registrations before 13 March.
