Cutting through the politics of the Scottish Independence Referendum: The International Law Implications of Independence Audio Webinar

As Scotland is poised to decide on its future, a number of questions remain unexplored and unresolved in the politics of the Referendum debate.

In our July 2014 webinar, “Cutting through the politics of the Scottish Independence Referendum: The International Law Implications of Independence”, our speakers considered the legal ramifications of an independent Scotland from an international law perspective; including

  • Would Scotland automatically be bound by, and benefit from, the UK’s international treaties after independence, and would the remaining UK’s international law rights and obligations be affected?
  • How can Scotland negotiate continued membership of the EU and what are the implications?
  • How would Scotland’s maritime boundaries be drawn in the event of independence and how does that impact oil and gas reserves in the North Sea?
  • What impact would independence have on oil and gas sector regulation?
