Jurisprudence 6/2021 Section: Articles Page: 1-10

Keywords: Brexit, European Union, dispute-settlement, judiciary, Court of Justice of the EU, preliminary question, infringement

Abstract: This article analyses the gradual detachment of the United Kingdom from the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) triggered by Brexit. It maps the changing procedural rules for EU law enforcement, annulment of EU legal acts, and preliminary references to the CJEU during several phases of the Brexit process. In particular, the article focuses on judicial interventions into negotiations on the UK Withdrawal agreement and during the transition period. The article also deals with the special legal regime for Northern Ireland and the dispute on post-Brexit participation of the British advocate general in the work of the CJEU.
