    The passage of the referendum for the United Kingdom to withdraw from the European Union proved shocking, particularly given how closely intertwined members’ economies and legal systems become with the European Union. While we can read about the economic consequences in the press, legal consequences require more analysis and perspective. This Roundtable will involve a preliminary exploration of some of the potential consequences that may result the Brexit referendum.  Is it possible for the U.K. separate its legal system from that of the European Union, and if so, how? What would the consequences be for the U.K and for the European Union? Who, if anyone, benefits from this withdrawal? What are the broader effects for other transnational projects?
