The outcome of the European Union membership referendum in 2016 has presented the United Kingdom with one of its greatest challenges of modern times. As negotiations for an exit strategy continue, this volume looks to open up conversations on the socio-legal implications of such a monumental transition. Aimed at addressing issues relating to Brexit that affect every aspect of British society, this book seeks to not just list the problems but to offer viable solutions for “the way forward”.
Divided into three parts, this book presents a comprehensive yet accessible discussion of the impact of Brexit on the United Kingdom. Part I brings together three social studies essays that reveal how Brexit is already affecting Brits abroad, the difficulties foreigners face in the UK, and the lack of opportunities for British students in the future. Part II turns its attention to national legal issues that are affected such as the Irish border, waste management, and the support of local enterprises. Finally, Part III investigates commercial law touching on important topics such as international litigation and insolvency.
As this publication suggests eventual solutions to several issues caused by Brexit, it may be of interest to not only other academics working in the field, but also to policy makers and relevant stakeholders.

Marcello Sacco is an Italian Postgraduate Research student in the School of Law at the University of Leeds. He received his Master Hons in International Sciences from the University of Siena. His main research interests are human rights and EU governance. Notably, he has already published and participated in several conferences talking about the implementation of international human rights law.
His application for working at the Leeds University was accepted the week before the Brexit referendum. Since then Brexit has been a daily discourse that should have deserved the contribution of everyone to be solved. As his own research does not look into Brexit issues, Marcello’s contribution to such a contemporary challenge has been the organization of a relevant international conference together with the edition of this collection.
