Abstract

Since 1973, the English legal system has been radically affected by what is now called ‘EU law’. Following the Brexit referendum the UK has now left the EU but there remains a legacy of nearly fifty years of EU-related legislation and case law to contend with.

The mechanism for dealing with how that has been achieved, and the implication for the future, is discussed here.
