Announcement: Changes in the Editorial Board

Dear Readers,

After almost three years of work with the KSLR Commercial & Financial Law Blog — of which one and a half as Editor-in-Chief —  it is with sadness that I announce that competing work committments force me to step down from the editorial board effective from 1st February. I leave the blog in the competent hands of the KSLR editors.

I am extremely proud of the goals that the Blog has achieved. Last year we doubled the number of posts published, created a LinkedIn page, and the “Reporter” position, issued numerous calls for papers, set up the “Latest Focus” and “Events Bulletin” sections, and doubled the number of FB followers.

For all of these achievement, I am thankful to both my amazing team for their terrific work and to all of you for your support!

Keep following the Blog and good luck to the new Editors!

At the outset, the speakers clarified that they acknowledge and respect the will of the British people to leave the EU. Their presentations should thus be read as neutral legal considerations of the consequences of the Brexit vote. Continue reading

A big THANK YOU to all of our contributors and followers!

We’ll keep up the good work!
