As I write, its all over the news that Britain has voted to leave the EU.
I just started my PhD last September, but successfully completed my annual review this April. My research examines the implementation of a particular EU directive in the UK, under both Scots law and English law and ascertaining how the unique legal systems in both countries has led to a varied interpretation of the directive.
My question is, with the exit of the UK from the EU, does it mean I have to drop my PhD as it will seem irrelevant or overtaken by events, since the particular EU directive I am looking at may stop applying to the UK after the exit?
I have earlier spoken to my supervisor about this and he said there was no problem if the UK pulls out, as the research focuses on an event that happened. But this was months back when the possibility of a Brexit was dim. Britain has now pulled out!
What do you think may happen to my research? I am funded by my university, so it will be painful to leave the programme. Please I am very concerned about this development.
