With the end of 2020 fast approaching, the UK is about to exit the EU transitional period. This will see the UK treated for the first time as a “third country” in many areas where there used to be UK / EU cooperation, subject to any agreement on the future relationship.
In a number of areas, the legal frameworks for 2021 and onwards will differ significantly from the current EU landscape. This raises a number of challenges and the Law Society will be holding a series of webinars to talk practitioners through these changes, in conjunction either external stakeholders or with members from our policy committees.
In these early 2021 webinars, we’ll focus on the practical issues and legal frameworks so that you and your firm have the best possible basis to adapt into the new situation. We’ll also be sharing our guidance on preparing for the end of transition.
The webinars will be free of charge:

- data flows in a Brexit transition landscape – Thursday 14 January, 2pm
