Corporate Members presented legal pathways to Brexit over Breakfast

 

On April 24th, CEPS hosted a Corporate Breakfast with Michael-James Clifton, Barrister and Head of Cabinet of the President of the EFTA Court. Clifton outlined the technicalities of the different types of agreement the United Kingdom might be able to strike with the European Union once the Art. 50 process is completed. In particular, he explained the differences between EFTA and the EEA, and which of the two would represent the best model (or starting point) for the special relationship that the UK is seeking. The British lawyer then highlighted the implications that opting for one or the other model would have with regard to the judicial resolution of disputes.
