Students heading for the Brexit?

A brain drain of EU law students would damage universities and our profession.

Richard Whish QC (hon) is emeritus professor of law at King’s College London and president of the Law Society’s competition law section says

’I’m very concerned about the effect of Brexit on the teaching of EU and competition law in UK universities. My academic career began at Bristol University in 1978; in 1991 I moved to King’s College London. During those 38 years, predominantly specialising in EU competition law, I have taught students from every EU member state (and the EEA countries). I have taught far more from other member states than from the UK, and provided careers advice that led to many non-UK students having highly successful careers here. Equally, I have watched many of my UK students move to the continent and enjoy fulfilling careers there.’
