From the Editors - Maritime and Transport Law Committee newsletter article, July 2020
Welcome to the summer 2020 edition of the IBA Maritime and Transport Law Committee newsletter.
We have invited contributions from various countries on a particular topic, to give readers a flavour of how that topic is being addressed in different jurisdictions. For this edition, we have chosen the Covid-19 pandemic and asked committee members to approach this already well-discussed theme, not only from a legal, but from a personal perspective as well. We hope you enjoy reading the selection of articles!
In addition, we received many interesting updates from all over the world. You will find these in the ‘hot topics’ section.
Would you be interested in writing a contribution for the fall 2020 edition? If so, do get in touch with us at any time and we will be happy to assist you.
Unfortunately, we will not be able to meet in person in Miami this year. Thus, our committee newsletter will be one way of keeping in touch, before we hopefully meet again soon.
Stay healthy and best wishes from your newsletter team
Marco and Patrick
