This month’s Agenda focuses on developments regarding Brexit

Following the UK’s referendum on its membership of the EU on 23 June 2016, the agenda focuses on Brexit in this month’s edition of the Brussels Agenda.

There is a special section on the issue, as there have been further developments on Brexit: the EU institutions have chosen their key players in the negotiations; the UK government is, behind closed doors, developing its strategy towards the negotiations; and, as such, the Law Societies are also taking their positions on the issue.

It includes viewpoint contributions from Robert Bourns, President of the Law Society of England and Wales, and Eilidh Wiseman, President of the Law Society of Scotland on the issue of Brexit. Furthermore, we have a piece from Ignasi Guardans, a Spanish lawyer and former politician, providing a European perspective on Brexit.

With a withdrawal agreement not expected to be reached for some time however, there are still plenty of other developments within the EU institutions included as well, such as new copyright proposals from the European Commission, an own initiative report on mutual recognition of certificates of adoption and the Advocate General’s opinion on the EU-Canada agreement on the transfer of Passenger Name Record data.
