It is almost impossible to write a legal analysis of an event (Brexit) that has not happened and may never happen. This chapter nonetheless contributes to the edited collection in that it reports on the current legal position in the UK, and presents an analysis of two possible immediate post-Brexit legal futures, for data protection law as applicable to biobanking in the UK. These post-Brexit futures are the position if the draft Withdrawal Agreement is ratified and comes into force, and the position if it does not (a so-called ‘No Deal’ Brexit). The chapter concludes with some thoughts on possible longer term futures.
