PLC has published a podcast on governing law clauses and Welsh legislation. (Free access)
PLC has published a Podcast, Governing law clauses and Welsh legislation: is there still a law of England and Wales? (www.practicallaw.com/9-520-8321), produced by JurisProductions for PLC.
In this podcast, Daniel Greenberg, consultant, writer and teacher specialising in legislation, and Parliamentary Counsel at Berwin Leighton Paisner, and Sophie Cameron, Head of PLC Public Sector, consider the ramifications of the power given to the Welsh government to pass its own Acts following a 2011 Referendum in Wales, and whether this power affects the use of standard governing law and jurisdiction clauses in UK contracts.
The time you spend listening can be counted towards your annual non-accredited Solicitors' Regulation Authority (SRA) CPD requirement. If you or your firm is authorised by the SRA, you may claim accredited CPD by listening to PLC podcasts and then having a face-to-face discussion about them. You can claim the total time of the session, provided it lasts at least an hour and the podcasts listened to comprise no more than half the total session. For full details, see the SRA website.
