The UK-EU relationship and beyond
Following the UK's withdrawal from the EU there is continued interest in the current UK-EU relationship regulated by the Withdrawal Agreement and the Trade and Cooperation Agreement. This new relationship necessarily builds on the extensive EU legal framework developed during the UK's membership in specific areas. We have undertaken continued analysis of the UK's post-Brexit legislation through input into parliamentary proceedings such as debates on the Northern Ireland Protocol Bill and the Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill. This engagement evidences the importance of sound independent expertise in informing parliamentary discussions and governmental decisions. Additional insights may be drawn from the EU's relationship with other major European countries (such as Switzerland), especially regarding the relevance of Swiss case-law on EU relations for the UK judiciary post-Brexit.
Below there are examples of the Fellows' engagement in this area through research, publications, and events.
