Legal Resources on the Brexit

BrexitThe United Kingdom European Union Membership Referendum, also known as the EU referendum or Brexit referendum (because of the potential exit of Britain from the EU), is a plebiscite scheduled to take place in the United Kingdom and Gibraltar on June 23, 2016. Membership in the European Union has been a topic of debate in the United Kingdom since before the country joined the European Economic Community (EEC or “Common Market”), as it was known then, in 1973.

To help inform a broader cross-section of the public and provide them with authoritative analysis on questions that relate to the highly contentious possibility of a Brexit, Oxford University Press has now made freely available a large selection of materials from the Oxford Public International Law database relating to the Brexit debate. To keep track of recent commentary on and information about the legal consequences of a Brexit, they have also made available a new Brexit Debate Map.

Readers can also keep themselves informed by consulting theBBC’s All You Need to Know page on the Brexit referendum debate.
