Confused by Brexit?
Following the UK referendum vote to leave the European Union on 23rd June 2016 the UK’s future relationship with the EU is uncertain. It’s impossible to predict what lies ahead; not even your lecturers know at this point! Here at Oxford University Press we think it’s a fascinating time to be studying European Union 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 some relevant blog posts. We’ll keep updating this site so please keep checking back!
