What impact will Brexit have on family lawyers? 

Brexit is now less than two years away. What will the government’s proposal of the domestication of EU law within English law mean for family law? What will the consequences be if reciprocity with EU member states ceases? What advice should be given to clients now in respect of marital agreements and children?

This webinar, by David Hodson OBE MICArb, will cover: 

  • the legal implications of Brexit for family law
  • the areas of family law currently covered by EU law
  • the areas in which there will be a legal vacuum if EU law is not domesticated
  • the difficulties of domestication of EU law without reciprocity
  • how family law might evolve if there were no EU law within national law
  • practical steps solicitors can take
