Abstract

Following the Council negotiating directives approved on 22 May 2017, the Commission’s Position paper transmitted to EU27 on Judicial Cooperation in Civil and Commercial Matters, of June 29, transmitted to the UK on July 12, set out the main principles to be applied on the withdrawal date to the winding down of the existing relationship between the EU and the UK. In response to these the UK Government produced a paper entitled Providing a cross-border civil judicial cooperation framework. A future partnership, on August 22, stressing the need to agree in a new civil judicial cooperation framework for future cases, mirrored on existing provisions; judicial cooperation in civil and commercial matters in the context of separation is only addressed in an Annex.

As of June 2018, a Draft Withdrawal Agreement has been published in a coloured version, reflecting the developments made to date in the bilateral negotiation with the UK; the European Council (Art. 50) has adopted guidelines on the framework for post-Brexit relations with the UK, which will serve as a mandate for the EU negotiator to start discussing the framework for the upcoming rapports. This paper, which updates the previous one (entitled Continental Perspectives on Brexit) briefly addresses the first document before moving on to comment on what seems to be the main UK concern - the future partnership.
