Tune in to episode 14 of the Blackstone Chambers Litigation Podcast, as Kieron Beal KC presents recorded highlights from the 2023 Retained EU Law Conference. Joined by Tom de la Mare KC, James Segan KC and Gayatri Sarathy, the panel provides an insightful introduction to The Retained EU Law (REUL) Act 2023.

The REUL Act is the final chapter in a huge and complex five-year legislative exercise to give effect to Brexit in UK law. Among the Act’s many major effects, it “sunsets” significant parts of retained EU law; abolishes (unless specifically saved) directly effective provisions from Directives and general principles; and makes important changes to how retained EU law operates; whilst giving the Government yet further executive powers to amend or remove retained EU law by way of delegated legislation. The conference explained the general provisions of the Act in detail as well as exploring potential impacts in key affected sectors such as employment, environmental law, tax, financial services, telecoms and energy.

Stay tuned for Part 2, where Kieron Beal KC, Naina Patel, Emily Neill, Ravi Mehta, Harry Adamson and Hollie Higgins explore the potential impacts of the REUL Act in key affected sectors.
