Law Society welcomes UK government commitment to UK-EU justice cooperation post-Brexit

The Law Society, England and Wales’ professional association for lawyers, has welcomed the UK government’s intention to continue UK-EU cooperation on criminal justice following Brexit (see previous blog). In a paper, the Government said that cooperation with the EU should go “beyond the existing, often ad hoc arrangements, for EU third-country relationships” in this area. It goes on to acknowledge that the UK has “supported and benefited from the development of a series of legal instruments…to build resilience against the threats the UK and the EU jointly face”.
