The global pervasiveness and dynamic propagation of the risks arising from contractual failures provides an opportunity to reconsider the nature and impact of mechanisms for excusing failure to...
The Conflict of International Agreements in Air Law: A Reasonable Plea for Conventional Uniform Rules

Data, much like other currencies, flows cross-border -from one jurisdiction to the other. However, it is hard to regulate the privacy aspects surrounding such free-flowing data by rules strictly based on jurisdiction. This article thereby begins by discussing the importance of data protection regulations like the General Data Protection Regulation (G.D.P.R.), followed by a brief analysis of the...
Challenging the Undesired Outcome of FIOST Clauses on Cargo Interests
Loss of, or damage to goods is a frequent occurrence in the shipping industry, which may often occur as a result of improper cargo-handling operations during loading, discharging or even stowing. This highly concerns cargo interests, as they will seek to reimburse their loss from their carriers under bills of lading. Often, the bill of lading may well contain terms of a charterparty by way of...
Constituting Over Constitutions
In philosophy, legal theory and law, the Grundnorm, or basic norm, is often assumed to be the constitution, or that which overrides other norms. That is incorrect. This paper argues that the grundnorm should be the norm which regulates human procreation. This norm must proceed from the theoretical absence of human power, or a zero baseline. This essay attempts to correct the grundnorm fallacy...
Is a Requirement to Wear a Mask Economically Valid During COVID-19?
Two of the most important categories of government intervention in response to COVID-19 are business closures and mask mandates. The scientific literature supports the efficacy of mask-wearing to reduce the transmission of respiratory viruses (including COVID-19).

Video Surveillance of the Employees Between the Right to Privacy and Right to Property After López Ribalda and Others v. Spain
The tension between safety and privacy has become an important issue in the modern world.

Ex Machina: Technological Disruption and the Future of Artificial Intelligence in Legal Writing
Technology is disrupting the practice of law and revolutionizing how lawyers work. This revolution is made more powerful because it is increasingly coupled with a rigorous and scientific approach to the law. In some ways, law is looking more like a Silicon Valley startup and less like the oak-paneled law firms of the last 200 years. As law, technology, and science merge, the implications for the...
