In the referendum held on 23 June 2016, people of the UK voted in favour of leaving the European Union. The discussions around the leave process are now ongoing and it will take at least two years, if not longer, for the UK to formally leave the EU.

Potential options for a new relationship with the EU include: a combination of free trade agreements with individual EU member states; bilateral deals or a customs union with the EU; or membership of the European Economic Area (EEA) and/or the European Free Trade Association (EFTA). It remains possible that a further Scottish Independence referendum could be held in the future, potentially leading to a significant difference in the legal landscape North and South of the border.
