DIA members will enjoy complimentary access to the full text of the PLC Life Sciences multi-jurisdictional guides published by Practical Law.


Practical Law Company’s Life Sciences multi-jurisdictional provides practical information on topical issues and country-specific Q&A overviews on this area of law and practice. The guide features a comparative tool which allows the user to select a specific question or topic, select the jurisdictions they are interested in and the tool will compare the answers.

The Q&A chapters are written by leading local law firms in each jurisdiction. The questions are designed by PLC’s team of ex-private practice lawyers alongside international editorial boards comprising of legal professionals (both in-house and private practice) active in that particular area. This helps to ensure the guides address the key issues facing any international lawyer doing business in an unfamiliar jurisdiction. If any member would like more information on a contributing law firm or has any feedback regarding the guides, please contact
