    How do you think that the British law degrees will change as a result of Britain leaving the European Union? Do you think that a few years into the future, EU law modules will no longer be a part of it? Or do you believe that Britain will keep these archaic bits of its past membership as the EU law will still likely influence the British legal system?

    There will be less EU focus when EU law no longer applies. I don't think it will be of much interest in the future. In the history of law in Britain it is only a tiny chapter and while it may be worth a mention, it is hardly fundamental. It is only 40 years ago that EU law began to apply. The legal system and most of our laws were developed before then and they will carry on after.

    Having said that, it could be 20 years before EU law no longer applies.

    EU Law will be taught far less as its relevance will decline significantly, there may be arrangements made in the deal that people who study EU Law in British universities can apply to foreign firms, which could draw lots of talent abroad, but on the whole, a whole area of law will be deprecated and only of historical / other interest.

    If we remain in the single market or in the European Economic Area, EU law will continue to apply to the UK.

    For example Norway is not a member of the EU, but is subject to EU law in most of the key areas such as freedom movement of goods and people.

    Even if we leave the single market, the EU, the EEA etc. Britain will still be subject to EU laws, as long as they will be trading 'bilaterally' within the borders of the EU. People do not seem to understand that International laws apply even though you are not a member of a certain club...
