2.7 The European Economic Area
It’s worth remembering that the UK is also subject to European laws.
Part of that reciprocation is the subscription to a Europe-wide legal jurisdiction through the adoption of EC directives. This means that all the member states will have roughly the same law in relation to anything covered by an EC directive. However, there is some leeway in the interpretation of the directives, which is why countries still have their own laws and why there may be slight differences between them.
In the next section, you’ll be invited to find out about similar laws in a country of interest and share your results with other learners.
