These chapters are grouped into three larger parts covering: (1) the Treaty foundations and the legal framework of a Member State’s withdrawal from the Union (2) the impact of Brexit on selected areas of law, including, inter alia, company law, financial regulation, tax law, free movement of labour, and competition law; (3) the consequences of Brexit for Scotland and Northern Ireland.
