This course will familiarise you with the impact of Brexit on the UK’s public procurement regime and the UK’s options for the future of that regime. It will equip you to advise clients on the changes which might come about, when they are likely to take effect and the appropriate response.

The course is aimed at:

  • Lawyers working in the public sector,
  • Those in private practice advising public sector clients and bidders, and
