Global Britain, civil judicial cooperation and cross-border commerce

Global Britain, civil judicial cooperation and cross-border commerce with Lord Keen of Elie QC, Advocate General for Scotland & Lords Spokesperson for the Ministry of Justice

As the UK prepares to leave the European Union, its commitment to international commerce remains as strong as ever. Increased international civil judicial cooperation and our outstanding legal services sector are vital elements of this commitment.

This session is a great opportunity to hear first-hand from a UK Government Minister who has a leading role in Global Britain.

Lord Keen was appointed Advocate General for Scotland in May 2015. He also became the spokesperson for Ministry of Justice business in the House of Lords in July 2016.

Lord Keen has represented various UK Government interests in high profile and complex court cases in the UK Supreme Court and in Strasbourg. He led on the devolution aspects of R (Miller) v Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union. In addition, he has been regularly instructed in the Commercial Court, in the Inner House (the Court of Appeal in Scotland) and in the UK Supreme Court in a range of Commercial and Public Law cases. He also served as Dean of the Faculty of Advocates (leader of the Scottish Bar) from 2000 until 2014.
