Brexit will lead to loss of rights
UK Prime Minister Theresa May has triggered Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty, marking the formal start of negotiations on the terms of Britain’s exit from the European Union.
Range of remedies
Professor Panos Koutrakos, Jean Monnet Professor of EU Law and Professor of European Union Law in the City Law School, said:
“Brexit will have serious consequences for the considerable rights that individuals and business currently enjoy. These rights cover areas as diverse as trade, employment, telecommunications, public procurement, and human rights. They are also enforced on the basis of a range of remedies before both domestic courts and the Court of Justice in the European Union. Triggering the procedure laid down in Article 50 will lead to the loss of rights”.
Professor Koutrakos is an authority in the area of free movement within the EU, and is co-editor of Exceptions from EU Free Movement Law – Derogation, Justification and Proportionality (Hart Publishing, 2016).
A legal remedy, also judicial relief or a judicial remedy, is the means with which a court of law, usually in the exercise of civil law jurisdiction, enforces a right, imposes a penalty, or makes another court order to impose its will.
