A report by the EU Justice Sub-Committee of the House of Lords looks at the issues arising from the UK’s decision to leave the European Union, and, in particular, remove itself from the jurisdiction of the Court of Justice of the European Union, in relation to European cross border cases in such areas as:

  • Divorce
  • Disputed custody of children
  • A medical negligence claim;
  • Litigation arising out of a car accident abroad
  • Failure to perform a contract
  • An employment dispute

The current legal framework provides certainty about where such cases should be held and  for the automatic recognition and enforcement of judicial decisions and judgments throughout the EU. The report highlights concerns for families, individuals and businesses if  alternative adequate arrangements are not in place when the UK leaves the EU.

Earlier this week the House of Lords EU Energy and Environment Sub-Committee published its report on Brexit: environment and climate change recommending key actions to ensure the environment is as well protected post Brexit as it is now.

The report discusses how policies and standards relating  to the environment and climate change are deeply embedded in EU Law and points out the complexity and scale of the task ahead.
