Nicholas Aroney (University of Queensland) seeks to discern the reasoning behind the recent Supreme Court's Miller decision: how much is window dressing, how much is ratio? Is it enough that the ECA creates a ‘new source of law’, or is it also necessary that the new source of law ‘takes precedence over all domestic sources’? If the latter, is this tantamount to saying that what matters is the unique nature of the EU system as having both direct effect and supremacy? Should the ECA be seen as special because its processes are constitutional or simply because they pertain to the creation of domestic law?

To address these questions, Professor Aroney will be delivering a seminar at 1pm on Tuesday 7th February in the Danson Room of Trinity College. All are welcome.
