On 12 November 2015, President Obama signed an Executive Order terminating the sanctions aimed at members of the former Liberian regime of President Charles Taylor. The lifting of sanctions is based on the fact that Taylor is now serving a prison sentence imposed by the Special Court for Sierra Leone and President Obama’s determination that persons connected to Taylor’s former government have ‘diminished ability’ to ‘undermine Liberia’s progress.’ All entities and individuals who were placed on the Specially Designated Nationals (SDN) List under the Liberia-related sanctions have been removed from the list and are now unblocked.

"The newsfeeds deliver us the most recent legal analysis and practical information. There seems to be a broad analysis which is beneficial to us in analyzing various areas of law. It provides a snap shot update of various legal developments and assists us in staying current. The articles are well covered and include the right amount of detail. The size and depth of articles are good too, so we can get to the information one needs very quickly. The articles are typically of high calibre and from high-calibre authors who provide sufficiently succinct articles so that one can learn much about new developments in a short amount of time. I like the format because it is easy to scan for relevant articles. It's a great tool. I like the fact you can tailor the newsfeeds by jurisdiction and work area, and only receive information relevant to your practice."
