Local academics co-author new lawyer’s guide book

A book co-authored by two Macau-based academics was recently featured at the BRICS Forum on the International Rule of Law held in Beijing.
Professor Rostam J. Neuwirth and associate professor Alexandr Svetlicinii from the Faculty of Law at the University of Macau (UM) co-authored the book, titled “The BRICS-Lawyers’ Guide to BRICS Texts and Materials”. It is one of the first collections of important texts and materials emerging from cooperation among BRICS member states.
BRICS is the name and acronym of an association of five major emerging national economies: Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa.
According to a statement issued by UM, the compilation was brought together with the intention of making these materials easily accessible to government officials, practicing lawyers and arbitrators, as well as scholars and students.
The book includes treaties, summit declarations by heads of state, ministerial declarations, declarations adopted by the BRICS Legal Forum and other official documents.
The book was launched at the forum earlier this month.
