LEGAL ATLAS AND THE FISHERIES LAW CENTRE FORM A PARTNERSHIP
A GLOBAL MAPPING SYSTEM FOR FISHERIES LAWS & REGULATIONS
The two institutions agreed on sharing past and future legal research including legal compilation and legal analyses to populate the Fisheries Law section of Legal Atlas’ map. The two institutions also agreed to co-author related materials and publications. This project will allow users to access and compare laws and regulations as well as legal research in various jurisdictions by simply clicking on a country’s map. The aim of this project is to facilitate research and access to laws.
Call for contributions
Both institutions would like to extend a call for contributors that are interested in participating in this initiative. If interested, please contact tyler (at) fishlaw.org for more information or to get involved.
