EU referendum statement of the European Law School Network

"Brexit has, of course, struck the European Law School emotionally - as most of its members, friends and ourselves. The immediate impact on the programme over the next years will almost certainly be minimal if any. We nevertheless wish to express our sadness about the outcome. For the European Law School, Europe - the EU - stands in its core for a peaceful together, for more common understanding and full respect and encouragement also of diversity. After discussion of the issue during the next Steering Committee Meeting in August, a broader statement will be made."
(Prof. Dr. Dr. Stefan Grundmann, LL.M., President of the ELS Network)
