About the Inquiry

At its meeting of 19 December 2017 the Justice Committee agreed to hold two roundtable evidence sessions on the impact of leaving the EU on justice issues in Scotland.  The evidence will focus on civil and criminal justice matters and will cover:

  • family law
  • civil, commercial and consumer law.

Some of these areas could fall within the ambit of the Common Frameworks which are currently being discussed between the UK and the devolved nations.  The Joint Ministerial Committee (EU Negotiations) agreed a communique setting out a series of common principles that underpin the work of establishing common frameworks.
