BrexitRetained EU law―a practical guide
Retained EU law is a legal term introduced into UK law under the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018. It captures EU-derived rights and legislation the government intends to retain and preserve in UK law for legal continuity once the transitional arrangements under the Withdrawal Agreement come to an end. There is no specific list of retained EU law for lawyers to refer to—it is a matter of statutory interpretation. In this revisited analysis, Kieran Laird, partner and head of constitutional affairs at Gowling WLG, examines its meaning, scope and status, and provides essential tips for navigating and interpreting retained EU law. See News Analysis: Retained EU law―a practical guide.
