Confused by Brexit?
Following the UK referendum vote to leave the European Union on 23rd June 2016, the relationship between the European Union and the UK is uncertain.
Here at Oxford University Press we think it’s a fascinating time to be studying EU law, as history is made before our eyes. So, in addition to your textbooks, we want to support you as the events unfold; to help you engage with the legal and political issues at play, and consider the potential outcomes, so that you feel informed and can form your own opinions.
To do this we’ve enlisted the help of our authors to provide updates from a variety of different perspectives, as well as links to other useful resources such as blog posts and OUP’s Brexit Debate Map. We’ll keep updating this site so please keep checking back for new content!
