David Cameron is reported to have made "really good progress" on an EU reform deal during this week’s Brussels summit but warned it would take hard work to get an agreement by February as hoped. Mr Cameron said EU leaders had agreed to work with him on all four areas of his reform demands, including his controversial call for a four-year limit before EU migrants working in Britain can claim welfare payments which EU leaders had previously said was "unacceptable”. The three main other demands are to ensure greater protection for non-eurozone Member States, an exemption from the EU's goal of "ever closer union" and greater economic competitiveness. In its conclusions, the EU leaders said that after a "substantive and constructive debate" they "agreed to work closely together to find mutually satisfactory solutions in all the four areas at the European Council meeting on 18-19 February 2016".

"I find the Lexology service invaluable.
In common with many in-house lawyers, I have limited access to (and a limited budget for) resources and rely on receiving know-how from friends and contacts in private practice. Lexology is great as it provides a daily email with the headlines in all the areas of law that I am interested in (which are all relevant to me, as I was able to choose which areas I was interested in at registration), with links to articles from a wide variety of sources.
I tend to scroll through the daily email when I am having my lunch, reading the headlines and descriptions of the articles, and click on any items that are of interest to me - that way, I feel like I am kept 'in the loop' with legal developments.
In addition to the daily email, I find the articles themselves very helpful - they set out the legal principle but most importantly, they 'boil it down' to the practical implications. When I am doing legal research, I also find the archive search function very helpful.
I have recommended the service to quite a few friends who have also found it very helpful."
