Mayer Brown’s Brexit Snapshot podcast series provides insight on the latest legal issues related to the United Kingdom’s new post-Brexit relationship with the European Union, and keeps you up to date on changes to the legislative framework.

Episode 1: Retained EU law and beyond, January 2021

The end of the Brexit transition period does not signal the end of EU law in the UK. From January 1, 2021, a brand new category of law in the UK has been established – ‘Retained EU Law’; but what does this new category comprise and where does it fit within the broader UK legal landscape?

In our first episode, Rebecca Timms, Global PSL, Antitrust and Competition and James Harrison, Associate, Antitrust and Competition, discuss what role ‘Retained EU Law’ now plays in the UK and how it might evolve over time. They also look at some of the practical implications of this new category of domestic law for businesses.
