Join Us on April 23 for a Foreign Law Webinar on Fighting Pandemics

The current COVID-19 pandemic has put the healthcare systems of countries around the world to the test. While governments typically had laws and institutions in place to deal with pandemics and similar health crises, these have often had to be revised to deal with the current pandemic. In many cases, drastic new measures have been adopted and implemented.
