UK Supreme Court Justice Lord Neuberger said that Brexit could enhance London's status as the legal center of the world, allowing British courts to respond quickly to emerging issues. In his opinion, the secession of the United Kingdom from the European Union in no way undermines the status of London as the center of resolving legal disputes, but even is an incentive "for new opportunities."
London will strengthen its position as the legal center of the world after Brexit
"Brexit does not change the fact that lawyers and judges in the UK are world leaders and experts. And they have always been such," - Neuberger said. The speech of the Supreme Judge took place during a congress of judges in London. He also warned that British society could "start fragmenting" and lose the rule of law if steps to improvement of access to justice are not taken.
"We have a serious problem with access to justice for ordinary citizens, as well as representatives of small and medium-sized businesses. If this does not happen, society will eventually begin to fragment," - Neuberger said.
