The global community has witnessed game changing events in 2016. The shocking 51.8% vote to leave the European Union (EU) in the UK (the so-called Brexit), with a turnout of 72%, the highest since 1992 in any national contest, and the victory of Donald Trump in the United States. Both events have triggered a new wave of uncertainty on both sides of the Atlantic. These outcomes, which are indicative of rising populism across the world, have severe implications for these countries’ future economic growth. In this article, we discuss the economic consequences of the Brexit vote for the UK and the implications of Brexit on the UK’s legal system.
