United Kingdom Legal Research (ARCHIVE): BREXIT

This guide will help with your United Kingdom Legal Research. (ARCHIVE)

Legal Implications of BREXIT

Middle Temple Library has compiled a frequently updated annotated list of online resources on the legal implications of the UK referendum and Brexit. It includes blogs, reports, parliamentary papers, legislation, cases, news, library collections and useful websites.

Oxford Public International Law has compiled a Debate Map on Brexit.

This debate map indexes analysis of and information about the legal consequences of the Brexit, focusing specifically on the mechanics of leaving the EU and the impact on EU citizens in the UK and British citizens in the EU—as well as on trade, the environment, and human rights protection in the UK. The map also includes analysis of treaty withdrawal generally under international law and the extent to which obligations, particularly in the fields of human rights and trade, can be said to continue even after a state’s exit from a treaty. The collection includes blog posts, papers prepared by the UK government, legal advice issued by leading lawyers, and open access journal articles and book chapters. Its purpose is to collect together legal analysis of the consequences of the Brexit under international law and EU law. 

History of the EU Timeline

The Inner Temple Library has compiled a very useful History of the EU Timeline, from 1945 to the present day, which includes Brexit events.
