The article seeks to examine the potential impact of the vote to leave the European Union (‘EU’) in the UK referendum in June 2016, together with changes to professional training, notably the imposition of a new Solicitors’ Qualifying Examination (‘SQE’) from 2019/20, on the teaching of EU law in law degrees in England and Wales. The history of the Qualifying Law Degree (‘QLD’) and the place of the EU law core module within it is explained. The likely continuing effect of EU law in the English Legal System is summarised, and the reduction in EU law content in the requirements for professional training as compared with that customary on a QLD is noted. In the light of these apparent threats to the EU law module, possibilities are explored for rethinking approaches to teaching law which would reinvigorate the significance of EU law in law degrees which may well undergo redesign in the light of the changes considered here.
