Get Ready for Brexit A GJN PUBLIC DEBATE on 24 June 2021 - 5pm

Global Justice Network (GJN) is organizing a debate on the practical implications of Brexit and the current state of the law on June 24, 2021. This debate will be presented by: Professor Duncan Fairgrieve, Senior Fellow in Comparative Law, British Institute of International and Comparative Law, and Professor of Comparative Law, Université Paris Dauphine PSL as well as Professor Gilles Cuniberti from the Faculty of Law, Economics and Finance of the University of Luxembourg.

The moderator of this debate will be Carlos Villacorta of BCV Lex (Madrid, Bordeaux), member of the GJIN committee.

Two positions will be defended during this debate: a pro-Brexit side on one side and a counter-Brexit side on the other.

The withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union has economic, commercial, and of course legal consequences. Indeed, long negotiations between the United Kingdom and the European Union were necessary to reach a withdrawal agreement, to get out of all European regulations but also to find new agreements with this recent third country to the European Union

A member state of the European Union can withdraw from the Union under Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union (TEU). The United Kingdom is the first country to activate this article, through a notification to the European Council on March 29, 2017. The date of the Brexit was postponed due to the difficulty of the negotiations, until the Brexit was finally realized on January 31, 2020, leading then to a transition period for the next eleven months: until January 1, 2021.

The negotiations and new agreements between the United Kingdom and the European Union (and its member states) are mostly resolved, yet changes are to come as the Brexit inevitably impacts the legal sector.
