This is the constitutional case of the century.  Two sets of appeals come together, Miller from London and McCord from Belfast.  If the Supreme Court upholds the High Court decision in Miller, the government will have to introduce legislation at Westminster before it can trigger Article 50.  An expert panel of lawyers discuss the reasoning behind the court's judgement, public and press reaction, and the constitutional implications.

Speakers:

Joshua Rozenberg, Chair; & Presenter, BBC Law in Action

Sir Stephen Laws, former First Parliamentary Counsel

Professor Sionaidh Douglas-Scott, Queen Mary University of London

Jessica Simor QC, Counsel in the Supreme Court appeal
