Around the Black Box: Applying the Carltona Principle to Challenge Machine Learning Algorithms in Public Sector Decision-Making
For the first time, important public sector decisions are being taken in the absence of an accountable and identifiable human being. Instead, they are increasingly outsourced to machine learning algorithms (MLAs) to cut costs, save time, and, in theory, improve the quality of decisions made. However, MLAs also pose new risks to fair and legitimate decision making such as bias and rigidity. These...
The Headscarf Debate Returns to Luxembourg: A Second Chance for Religious Freedom?
The CJEU's July 2021 judgment in WABE and Müller (Joined Cases C-804/18 and C-341/19) was anticipated by observers as a sequel to two earlier, highly controversial decisions regarding EU anti-discrimination law and workplace bans on religious dress, Achbita and Bougnaoui. In Achbita, the Court held that EU law permitted employers to prohibit employees from wearing Islamic headscarves and other...
Principle, Pragmatism, and Policy in Determining the Scope of the Duty of Care and Extent of Liability for Consequences
Manchester Building Society v Grant Thornton UK LLP and Meadows v Khan are twin Supreme Court judgments concerning what is often termed the scope of the duty of care in negligence. This controversial principle seeks to determine whether a loss (or part thereof) factually caused by the defendant's negligence is attributable to the defendant, or whether the defendant is not liable because the loss...
Chip Off the Old Block: Acknowledging the Obstacles to Widespread Adoption of Blockchain Bills of Lading
The bill of lading has been a staple of the maritime shipping industry for centuries. Its evolution to facilitate three core functions was slow and arduous, with little change in the bill of lading's form and function ever since. The advances in electronic communication brought the prospect of electronic alternatives; however, the concept never succeeded, plagued with issues of excessive costs,...
Conversion Therapy Bans and Legal Paternalism: Justifying State Intervention to Restrict a LGBTQIA+ Individual's Autonomy to Undergo Conversion Therapy
Conversion therapy is harmful, ineffective and lacks scientific and medical justification; yet 2% of LGBTQIA+ individuals in the UK have undergone it, and a further 5% have been offered it. This begs the question: why is conversion therapy still not banned in the UK? This article aims to rebut a common argument employed against conversion therapy bans, that is the right of LGBTQIA+ individuals to
The Regulation of Islamic Finance in the UK: A call for change
For decades, the UK has been the leading nation in the Western world when it comes to Islamic finance. Despite this fact, the Islamic banking industry within the UK is still far behind conventional finance in terms of growth and development. This article argues that a major obstacle in the path of this industry's growth is the regulatory framework which it is currently subject to. As it stands,...
Fine margins: Examining the minority-majority divide in Enka v Chubb
The question of how to determine the law of the arbitration agreement has long been a hotly debated topic in the field of international commercial arbitration. While this contentious issue was addressed by the UK Supreme Court in Enka v Chubb, the majority and minority judges disagreed on the appropriate approach to take when an express choice of law governing the main contract is absent. In this
Resolving Investor State Dispute Settlement's Legitimacy Crisis: The Case for Reinstating the Requirement to Exhaust Local Remedies
This article dissects a variety of structural issues that contribute to the 'legitimacy crisis' currently faced by Investor State Dispute Settlement (ISDS) and in particular, treaty-based Investor-State Arbitration (ISA). Primarily, it addresses issues of jurisdictional overlap with domestic courts, and the inability of ISA to engender 'good governance' norms and the rule of law in respondent...
Self-Defence Against Non-State Actors: Reconceptualising the Legality of the 'Unwilling or Unable' Test in Light of the Doctrine of Necessity in International Law
The 'unwilling or unable' test is a real-world challenge that has the potential to make a mockery of the cornerstone of modern international law in Article 2(4) of the UN Charter. The increasing prevalence of unattributable armed attacks by NSAs provides an opportunity for powerful victim States to expand the notion of the inherent right of self-defence through the 'unwilling or unable' test,...
Too Little, Too Late: Facebook, GIFs, and the CMA
The legal mechanisms dealing with mergers, until recent developments, have lost sight of the principles of competition law. The CMA's ruling on the Meta–Giphy acquisition is very telling of the approach to come, but it is submitted that so much has passed through the weak sieve provided by competition law that to ring the alarm bells now would be unfortunate
State Jurisdiction and the Permissiveness of International Law: Is the Lotus Still Blooming?
The Lotus rule has traditionally stipulated that, in international law, any conduct not specifically prohibited is allowed. However, there now is considerable disagreement as to whether this principle is still valid. This article argues that one should distinguish between the Lotus principle's conceptual origins and its core content. It will be shown that, given the evolution of international law,
Addressing the Inadequacies: A New Multi-Faceted Solution to Double Hatting in ISDS
In Investor-State Dispute Settlement (ISDS), 'double hatting', or the playing of multiple roles by arbitrators in different ISDS proceedings as counsels, expert witnesses, or tribunal secretaries, is a problematic phenomenon. This regrettable practice results in the monopolisation of power and builds up suspicions regarding such arbitrators' impartiality which, in turn, threatens the legitimacy...
The Case for Eco-Liability: Post Okpabi Justifications for the Imposition of Liability on Parent Companies for Damage caused to the Environment by their Subsidiaries
This article seeks to argue for the imposition of liability onto parent companies for the damage to the environment caused by their subsidiaries. 'Eco-liability' will be suggested to be an appropriate means through which firms can be encouraged to engage in sustainable practices. This argument will be made in reference to the recent decision in Okpabi v Royal Dutch Shell,1 which, although...
When Are States (Not) Obliged to Save Citizens' Lives? Discovering the 'Restrictive Triage' which Undermines the Operational Duty under Article 2 ECHR
According to Article 2 of the European Convention on Human Rights, when states do or should know that an individual is at a real and immediate risk of death, the state has an operational duty to take reasonable steps that might be expected to avoid that risk from materialising. This article explains and analyses interpretations of that duty, both by the European Court of Human Rights and by UK...
