The advice echoes warnings from three of Britain's most senior experts in European and global lawon behalf of the People's Vote campaign.
Speaking in the House of Commons as May announced the agreement, Cabinet Office minister and her de-facto deputy David Lidington said MPs would face a "fundamental choice" later today "to vote for the improved deal or to plunge this country into a political crisis".
Cox said he now considered that the legally-binding provisions of the new documents "reduce the risk that the United Kingdom could be indefinitely and involuntarily detained" within the backstop, "at least in so far as that situation had been brought about by the bad faith or want of best endeavours of the EU".
But in the final part of his conclusion, Cox said that legal risks of Britain being stuck in the backstop remained. A version of the deal was rejected in parliament in late January by a record 230-vote majority against a government proposal.
The latest pact stressed the "legal force" and "binding character" of the withdrawal agreement.
The government's motion, due to be voted on by MPs on Tuesday, refers to a unilateral declaration setting out the sovereign action the United Kingdom would take to ensure the backstop would only be applied temporarily.
Mr Cox's advice is likely to weigh heavily on MPs when parliament votes on the new version of the deal on Tuesday.
If the deal is shot down again by parliamentarians as expected, another vote will be scheduled for Wednesday, this time on taking the potentially calamitous option of a "no deal" Brexit off the table.
"The legal instrument that we have agreed is an addition to the Withdrawal Agreement". It is legally binding.
However-and this is a very big "however"-a rejection of the concept does not mean a no-deal Brexit is off the table". Afterward, hard-core Brexit supporters in May's Conservative Party and the prime minister's allies in Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party both said they could not support the deal. Even with updated language on the Northern Ireland border, the vote could still fail, as most of the 585-page withdrawal agreement from January remains intact.
However, even if the Article 50 - the notification that Britain will leave the European Union - extension is granted, Juncker said last night that "it's this deal or Brexit might not happen at all".
Brexiteers in Mrs May's party had accused her of surrendering to the European Union, and it was not clear if the assurances she agreed to would be enough to win over the 116 additional MPs she needed to turn around the crushing defeat her deal, suffered in January.
Earlier on Monday, talks were said by government sources to be deadlocked and May was locked away in Downing Street for much of the day, apart from a brief appearance to give a bible reading at a service for Commonwealth Day.
"This evening's agreement with the European Commission does not contain anything approaching the changesTheresa May promised parliament", said Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.
