Dear members,

Greetings from the CECCA! Issue 14 of the CECCA Newsletter on Maritime Law and Commerce (ISSN 2631-7516) (CNMLC) is released now, we hope you will find it of interests.

Why has the title changed?

To provide with better insights based on our expertise, CECCA has made the decision to create a new series of newsletter focusing on Company and Financial Law, the first issue has been released already (CECCA Newsletter on Company and Financial Law, ISSN 2631-7524). On the other hand, the former ‘CECCA Newsletter’ (ISSN 2631-3405) will continue focusing on Maritime Law and Commerce, therefore, we changed the title into ‘CECCA Newsletter on Maritime Law and Commerce’, and the ISSN UK Center assigned us with the new ISSN (2631-7516). We sincerely ask for all of our members and friends’ continuing supports on our newsletters.
