|Llewellyn the Great|
On 14 April 2021, I asked: "Does Wales need a Law and Innovation Network?" The answer was a deafening yes for all the reasons set out in my article and more. However, as I also said in my article, such a network will not come into existence of its own accord. We need an initial event to launch it.
As it happens, an important anniversary is coming up. On 15 June 1215, Prince Llewellyn the Great extracted important concessions for the governance of Wales from King John of England. I can think of no better way to celebrate that event than by holding the first meeting of the Welsh La\w and Innovation Network.
The event will take place online. It will begin at 16:30 with a talk from me on Welsh geographical indications after Brexit and finish with a short business meeting at which I hope we shall secure general support for the project and some volunteers to prepare proposals for its mission, governance, funding and initial activities. We aim to finish by 18:00. If you want to attend you can sign up here.
Anyone wishing to discuss this proposal is welcome to call me on 020 7404 5252 during office hours or send me a message through my contact form.
