While Britain faces the economic, diplomatic and political unknown, nations on the other side of the Channel are also pondering their future with some officials, including Germany’s Vice-Chancellor suggesting that the Brexit vote could bring about the collapse of the EU.
On Thursday, one of the EU’s most distinguished legal professionals, Professor Verica Trstenjak, will look at the meaning of Brexit from a European perspective during a ground-breaking University of Sydney Business School Seminar.
Professor Trstenjak is an interim judge (juge par intérim) of the EU’s civil service tribunal and a former Advocate General of the European Court of Justice. She has provided legal opinions on the Common European Asylum System, the Charter of Fundamental Rights and the transfer of asylum seekers from one Member State to another.
Professor Trstenjak’s work has been widely published and she is a member of editorial board of several legal journals including European Law Review (SSCI), European Journal of Commercial Contract law, Ecolex, Italian Law Journal and others.
She is also a member of the International Academia of Comparative Law, Member of Academia Europaea and a Council Member of European law Institut.
