They wrote the book of corona law
The coronavirus, which affects life in many areas including the work routine, education system and social habits, has brought new interesting legal issues along with it. Izmir University of Economics (IUE) Faculty of Law, which organized a symposium to clarify different issues such as "protection of personal data", "criminal sanctions in fighting the virus" and "employees' rights", turned the proceedings into a book. The 716-page book, in which 35 lawyers working in different universities of Turkey made assessments about their areas of specialization, is for sale on the internet for the benefit of citizens.
Prof. Dr. Melda Sur, Dean of IUE Faculty of Law, and Asst. Prof. Dr. Mine Kasapoğlu Turhan, Vice Dean of IUE Faculty of Law, edited the book called "Covid-19 and Law Symposium". The book, which was created as a result of a study that lasted about 3 months after the symposium held in December, was prepared to be a guide for the debates in the field of law.
SOLUTION PROPOSALS ARE SHARED

What happened during the pandemic caused various discussions in the field of law; solution proposals were presented.
