About the event
In recent years, the boundaries of devolved legislative competence have become increasingly contested, both in the political arena and in the courts, with adverse consequences for the autonomy and effectiveness of devolved law-making. This talk will explore the reasons for increasing controversy and suggest ways, within the current constitutional order, in which more principled and satisfactory boundaries might be achieved.
