The United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union is of immense political and economic significance. But it also amounts to a legal transformation both internally within the UK and externally in the UK’s relationship with the EU and other countries. A complex legal ecosystem is emerging that draws upon EU law, international law, UK and devolved law in fashioning a set of rules and principles that manage the phenomenon of Brexit. The aim of this webinar is to introduce the salient and novel features of this body of law that we term “EU Relations Law”.
