The Solicitors Regulation Authority and the Bar Standards Board have issued a joint statement on EU law in the light of the outcome of the UK referendum on EU membership:
'At present, the United Kingdom remains a member state of the European Union. It is too early to know what the timetable for any change as a result of the outcome of the recent EU referendum vote will be, or the outcome of the post-referendum negotiations over access to the single market. Neither the SRA nor the BSB will be making any change to the academic requirements in relation to EU law for either the Qualifying Law Degree or Common Professional Examination for the coming academic year. The SRA will be making no change to its requirements for the Legal Practice Course for the coming academic year. The BSB will be making no change to its requirements for the Bar Professional Training Course for the coming academic year.'
