Message from Berkeley Global Society Chairman, Aubin Gonzalez Lapos This Corpus Juris is constructed in the context of the Coronarivus Pandemic, with most of the humanity under quarantine. As an organization, drawing its essence in friendship, diversity and global impact, our shared journey has been questioned as follows: how to overcome side by side such contingencies? Our heuristic response is: with solidarity & creativity; with dialogue & analysis; with a sense of multilateral & green responsibilities towards the next generations; by proposing new models; by taking coordinated actions with determination! Therefore, Berkeley Global Society along with exceptional legal practitioners, from all over the world, has decided to compile this white paper. Our purpose is to support lawyers, businesses, international organizations, stakeholders of various industries to manage global challenges. Warmest thanks to all my esteemed friends, including to M. Giovanni Battista Annicetti for having articulated such a legal overview.
