Professor Koutrakos explored the legal consequences of Brexit. He outlined the different legal arrangements which could govern the relationship between the UK and the EU and discussed their implications for business. He also examined the legal issues that would arise regarding the international treaties governing the relationships of the UK with the rest of the world and focused on their impact on business based in the UK or wishing to trade with the UK.
