Trigger happy?

Richard Lang

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Dr Richard Lang tackles the controversy which has arisen since the Brexit Referendum around the legality, as a matter of UK constitutional law, of the Prime Minister invoking Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union without prior (and explicit) parliamentary consent. Lang contends that, regardless of the legality or otherwise of such a move in UK law, the matter is ultimately a matter of EU law, as interpretation of the Treaty is an exclusive competence of the Court of Justice of the EU.
