About this Event

The Supreme Court’s judgment in Cherry/Miller, quashing the Prime Minister’s advice to Her Majesty to prorogue Parliament and therefore the prorogation that followed, is momentous.  It raises important questions about the nature of the constitution and the role of the courts therein.  This event brings together leading jurists to debate the judgment’s merits and implications.
