Wilberforce Chambers is delighted to announce the in-person return of the Nugee Pensions Lectures. We invite you to join our pensions team each week in June as they discuss current topics of particular interest. Wilberforce Chambers has a well-established reputation in the field of pensions law, due in large part to the late Edward Nugee QC, to whose memory these lectures are dedicated. The first lecture of 2022 will look at recent developments in pensions and personal bankruptcy; the second covers the interpretation of pensions scheme documents; the third looks at using old law to solve new problems; and the final lecture will explore European pension schemes in a post-Brexit world and the interaction between Sharia law and occupational pensions.

The fourth and final session is entitled ‘Broadening perspectives in UK pension provision’ and includes the following lectures:

  • European pension schemes in a post-Brexit world
    Emily Campbell and Caspar Bartscherer

    • German occupational pension schemes and employer solvency
    • German pension schemes in the ECJ
    • Overseas pension schemes as “non-UK registered schemes”
    • The Bayerische Ärzteversorgung litigation
  • Occupational pensions and Sharia law
    Michael Furness QC and Michael Ashdown

    • How may occupational pension arrangements fall foul of Sharia law requirements?
    • Are there circumstances it may be unlawful to provide non-Sharia compliant schemes?

The full programme for this year’s lectures is linked here.
