As made clear in the Government’s White Paper, The United Kingdom’s exit from and new partnership with the European Union, civil judicial cooperation is an important issue, which is being considered as part of the UK's preparations for EU exit negotiations.

We recognise that an effective system of civil judicial cooperation will provide certainty and protection for citizens and businesses, families and consumers. The UK intends to keep working with others, including stakeholders, in order to ensure a smooth transition to future arrangements.
