L9518 Reading Group on Brexit
Section 001, Spring 2019
Section Description Provided by Instructor
On March 29, 2019, the United Kingdom will cease to be a Member State of the European Union. Such a separation is a unique experience for the EU, but also internationally.
The evolvement of Brexit raises fundamental legal and regulatory questions that will change the future course of both the UK and the EU. At the time of writing, the process is developing, with both sides weighing their options in the negotiations, also in anticipation of the upcoming EU Summit in the last days of June.
In the 2019 CLS Spring term, crucial decision deadlines will have passed, and we will be able to analyze the legal consequences from a perspective of constitutional law, trade law as well as financial regulation. The purpose of this proposed reading group is for students to develop an informed opinion on Brexit and how this affects the regulatory structure of the EU and UK, by discussing the key legal documentation underlying the Brexit negotiations.
Instructor will select students from waitlist.
