Malcolm Birdling and Tim Johnston of Brick Court Chambers will be speaking at our PRG Seminar on Tuesday 8 April 2014 at 5.30pm.

Article 1 Protocol 1 of the European Convention on Human Rights (“A1P1”) provides a right to peaceful enjoyment of property and possessions, and only permits a person to be deprived of his or her possessions under certain conditions. At the same time, A1P1 recognises that the State is entitled to control the use of property in the general interest, by enforcing appropriate laws.  In recent years the scope of application of A1P1 has expanded, and at the same time the Courts have increasingly been required to map out the extent to which A1P1 may limit the permissible scope of regulatory intervention.  An additional layer of complexity is imposed by the presence of a cognate right in the European Charter of Fundamental Rights.

This seminar will provide a general overview of A1P1, discuss the standard of review applied by the Courts (and the level of deference accorded to regulators), provide practical examples of the application of A1P1 in a regulatory context and close with a discussion of the impact of the Property Right in the European Charter of Fundamental Rights.  There will also be an opportunity for Q&A and discussion afterwards.
