Brexit and EU Law - A Panel Discussion

What does Brexit mean for the United Kingdom and for Europe? Six leading European lawyers discuss the implications of the Brexit vote for the UK and for the European Union in a panel discussion at the Academy of European Law’s Summer School on EU Law. They analyse Article 50 TEU, explore a range of exit options and their implications and canvas various ways in which the UK, or parts thereof, might remain in the EU on a new basis.
