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.
