In the referendum held in the United Kingdom on June 23, 2016, a majority voted for the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (UK) to leave the European Union (EU). Brexit, however, will only become a reality at the end of a negotiating process that is set to last a minimum of two years. This is how long it is expected to take to arrange future legal relationships between the UK and the EU. Since currently the result of these negotiations is entirely open, the impending exit is already triggering considerable legal uncertainty. Numerous legal areas are affected.
