Professor Piet Eeckhout, Dean of UCL Laws and Academic Director of the UCL European Institute, was interviewed on the Today programme about the scope for extending Article 50.

With less than two months to go until the UK is set to leave the European Union, Professor Eeckhout discussed the provisional application of the Withdrawal Agreement, as an alternative to the extension of Article 50.

Professor Eeckhout acted as legal adviser for the Wightman legal team, having written about the subject of revocability with Dr Eleni Frantziou (Durham University) in ‘Brexit and article 50 TEU: A constitutionalist reading’.
