1.4. Brexit: Legal Aspect

Track: 1. International Law. Rule of Law


What is the process of Brexit now that notice has been served under Article 50 of the Treaty of the European Union? What will be the process of negotiation? What are the likely areas of agreement and disagreement, and what is the bottom line under WTO rules if no deal is reached? Will Brexit happen, now that Theresa May has called a general election? If it does happen, will there be life after Brexit?
