Peter Sellar of Axiom has been instructed in the Supreme Court constitutional case R (Miller) v Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union. Peter will act as junior for the Independent Workers Union of Great Britain (IWGB) which has been grated permission to intervene in this landmark case. It is on appeal to the UKSC after an English High Court ruling that the Prime Minister could not use her prerogative to send notification to the EU of the UK’s withdrawal of membership.  Alongside the Scottish and Welsh governments, the IWGB is intervening in support of Ms. Miller.
