  • Can Brexit be stopped under EU Law?

    … on the revocation question under Art. 50. Therefore, the legal question invariably turns to the interpretation of Art. 50 itself. The text of Art. 50 Two issues in the text of art. 50 have been prominent in the revocation debate: the legal relevance of ‘intention’ and the relationship between ‘intention’ in Art. 50 (2) and ‘withdrawal’ from the EU in Art. 50…

  • Is Article 50 Reversible? On Politics Beyond Legal Doctrine

    … to adjudicate or not on the revocability of the notification under article 50. Should the Supreme Court amend the High Court ruling and declare the revocability of the notification of withdrawal, this might create an internal political dispute but, in substance, most likely this seems to be the hypothetical course of action that the ECJ would follow…

  • Brexit and the Single Market: You say Article 50, we say Article 127?

    … Hard on the heels of the Article 50 case heard last week by the UK Supreme Court, comes the announcement of another challenge to the UK Government’s Brexit plans, this time based on Article 127 of the EEA agreement.

  • Miller, Brexit and the (maybe not to so evil) Court of Justice

    … In Miller, the High Court of England and Wales has ruled that Article 50 TEU must be triggered by Parliament and not by the Crown. The reasoning of the judgment is clear and logical.

  • Theresa May’s Great Repeal Bill – a Scottish own goal?

    … by seemingly following their Brexit-blueprint released last week. It may kill off legal challenges pending in the courts of England and Northern Ireland demanding that Parliament be involved before Article 50 TEU is triggered.

  • Jein – eine fehlende Variante bei dem Brexit-Referendum

    … Großbritannien hat eine Schicksalsentscheidung getroffen. Zwar hat die Volksbefragung nach herrschender Meinung nur beratenden Charakter, doch hat die britische Regierung im Vorfeld ankündigte das Ergebnis zu befolgen und wird es daher kaum übergehen. „Brexit means Brexit“, sagte auch Theresa May, die neue britische Premierministerin und frühere…
