Abstract

The presentation will provide an overview of the key legal issues affecting civil justice and judicial co-operation arising from the UK’s exit from the EU. It will explain how the UK’s withdrawal is likely to impact on the framework of rules which apply in this area and, in particular, the rules relating to jurisdiction, enforcement of judgments and governing law. The key questions to be addressed will revolve around (i) the effect of the EU/UK Withdrawal Agreement in the field of judicial cooperation, (ii) pending procedures in the UK and/or EU Member States, (iii) the recognition of judgments rendered in EU Member States and/or the UK and (iv) choice of law clauses and the extent to which such clauses may be upheld by UK and/or EU Member State courts.
