The UCLA School of Law Hugh & Hazel Darling Law Library has compiled a timely guide (https://libguides.law.ucla.edu/coronavirus) to help locate legal responses to COVID-19. According to the guide, “many units of government at all levels (federal, state, and local) have issued, and continue to issue, legal responses to the coronavirus epidemic, and some states have laws pre-dating the epidemic but that have become more relevant, such as quarantine statutes and requirements for paid sick leave. This [sic] goal of this guide is to provide links to primary sources and high-quality summaries to these.”
The federal materials provided in the guide include links to items published by various federal agencies as well as Public Laws about COVID-19. While the major focus of the guide is on federal and California resources, there are sections dedicated to other state and local jurisdictions.
There is also a useful section that provides links to “Other Resources” that users might find educational.
The Journal of Biosecurity, Biosafety and Biodefense Law (JBBBL) offers both a legal and scientific perspective on current issues concerning bioterrorism, public health and safety, and national security. Edited by an international board of leading scholars from all the continents, our journal is aware that bioterrorism related issues are global problems. Our goal is to develop a unique international community of legal scholars, scientists and policy experts who will address current issues in these fields.
