Legal Perspectives on COVID-19
COVID-19 is one of the most pressing issues of our time. As with other institutions, it has profoundly changed the way we work at BIICL. All staff now work remotely with extensive use of video conferencing. We have made a successful shift from physical to virtual conference and webinars.
Our regular research projects and training activities still continue. In addition, we are developing a dedicated team to address current pandemic developments.
Our areas of interest are:
- International legal obligations concerning pandemics
- Domestic legal responses to the crisis, both in the UK and globally
- Legal principles applying during emergencies, derived from international law
