Brexit legal advice
Following the referendum on 23 June 2016, in which 51.9% of United Kingdom (UK) voters decided to leave the European Union (EU), the UK government invoked Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty on 29 March 2017, giving two years' notice to terminate the UK's membership of the EU. The process of the UK exiting the EU is known as Brexit.
The UK is due to leave the EU on 29 March 2019 when the period for negotiating a withdrawal agreement will end, unless an extension is agreed.
At time of writing, a draft withdrawal agreement has been agreed to by the UK cabinet and the remaining 27 EU member states. In March 2019, MPs voted against leaving the EU without a deal and in favour of seeking an extension to Article 50, which would mean a delay to the 29 March deadline. Theresa May is expected to put her plan to vote for a third time shortly.
