The Complex Commercial Litigation Law Review

Edition 3

This expanded volume is published at a time when the world grows ever smaller and commercial relationships are the common currency that links countries and cultures across the globe. This reality has only come into sharper focus in a year when the global COVID-19 pandemic not only has ravaged public health and private lives but also has profoundly unsettled a vast array of commercial relationships, with as yet uncertain ultimate consequences.

The Privacy, Data Protection and Cybersecurity Law Review

Edition 7

Privacy, like everything else in 2020, was dominated by the covid-19 pandemic. Employers and governments have been required to consider privacy in adjusting workplace practices to account for who has fever and other symptoms, who has travelled where, who has come into contact with whom and what community members have tested positive or been exposed. As a result of all this need for tracking and tracing, governments and citizens alike have recognised the inevitable trade-offs between exclusive focus on privacy versus exclusive focus on public health and safety.
