COVID-19 NEWS: 'Stanford Law School Creates Free Database of COVID-19 Legal Memos'
Sue Reisinger reports the following for Law.com:
Stanford Law School has placed all those COVID-19 memos that have been flooding in-house lawyers’ inboxes into a free, searchable database. …
Created with general counsel in mind, the COVID-19 Memo Database puts more than 4,000 memoranda discussing legal, regulatory, accounting and governance issues wrought by the coronavirus at the legal department’s fingertips. …
The database, believed to be unique, is a keyword-searchable index that lists sources and titles, with links to the original memos. Sources include law firms, the Big Four auditing firms and other business experts. It was developed and is being maintained and updated by the Rock Center and Cornerstone Research. …
The memo topics range from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act, or CARES Act, with over 250 titles to business interruption issues with at least 18 titles. Other topics include tax matters, workplace issues, securities regulation, antitrust, insurance, international trade and more. Dozens of others deal with issues arising in specific countries such as China, the European Union, France, Germany and Great Britain.
