Theresa May: We will take back control of our laws after Brexit



The Supreme Court will be the ultimate arbiter of law in the UK after Brexit, Theresa May has said, as a government paper called for an end to the "direct jurisdiction" of EU courts in the country.

But the highly anticipated paper on dispute resolution suggests EU judges could continue to exercise jurisdiction in the transitional period after Britain's membership of the EU ends in March 2019.


It said the Government would work with the EU in the interim period - "including the arrangements for judicial supervision".


The document says "withdrawal from the EU will mean a return to the situation where the UK and the EU have their own autonomous legal orders".
