|Brexit: The Legal Implications brings to notice the challenges, options, opportunities and possibilities that Brexit may bring in the legal areas. If Brexit comes to pass, what changes in the United Kingdom (UK) legal system will the world face when dealing with the UK? The contributors to this penetrating new collection of studies – a worthy successor to the widely read pre-referendum Britain Alone! – bring a prodigious level of expert scrutiny to the myriad of ramifications of this hugely complex subject. This book gathers together experts from different fields of legal practice and academia not only to discuss the ongoing negotiations but also – and most valuably – to highlight and address the legal implications of possible scenarios and solutions for a post-Brexit UK and European Union.|
What’s in this book:
With topical chapters based on the Brexit Seminar Series held by the Centre of European Law at King’s College, the contributors examine the likely effects of the Brexit process in such areas as the following:
- constitutional and administrative law;
- the European Economic Area and the European Free Trade Association;
- EU State aid;
- the Irish border;
- the fall-back position of the WTO rules should no agreement be achieved;
- banking law, financial services and capital markets;
- debt restructuring and insolvency practice;
- environmental issues;
- private international law;
- social security; and
- residence rights, especially considering women and children.
