“A referendum is to be held on 23 June 2016 on the United Kingdom’s continued membership of the European Union.  This means that UK citizens will be asked to vote on the following question:

Should the United Kingdom remain a member of the EU or leave?

IN … the UK will remain a member of the EU, based on agreed reform of the EU.

OUT …the UK will cease to be a member of the EU, commonly referred to as Brexit.

This briefing is intended to provide an overview for clients and contacts who are interested in the referendum, including the legal implications should the UK decide to leave the EU.”
