Understanding how classical jurists thought about time is essential for us to fully understand the nature of legal demands, responsibility, and choice in the Islamic legal tradition. Despite its importance, the idea of time in Islamic legal thought remains largely unexplored, although there has been some interest in the concept of time in Islamic philosophy and philosophical theology.

Freelancers in online labor markets often display many skills in their profiles to increase their chances of participating in multiple jobs. However, such behavior may lead their displayed skills to straddle multiple categories, that is, skill spanning. In this paper, we extend the concept of category spanning into online labor markets and empirically examine (a) how freelancers’ skill spanning affects employers’ hiring decisions for two different types of jobs (routine and non-routine jobs), re...

This Essay argues that trusts and estates (“T&E”) should prioritize intergenerational economic mobility—the ability of children to move beyond the economic station of their parents—above all other goals. The field’s traditional emphasis on testamentary freedom fosters the stickiness of inequality. For wealthy settlors, dynasty trusts sequester assets from the nation’s system of taxation and stream of commerce. For low-income decedents, intestacy splinters property rights and inhibits their trans...

The paper argues that WTO Members need to consider urgently the implications of patenting genome editing inventions for human rights and the public interest, taking into account Article 27.2 of the TRIPS Agreement, which provides that Members may exclude from patentability inventions...
#1Nick Cowen (University of Lincoln)H-Index: 3
Liberal egalitarians argue that the state is justified in taxing members of a political community to achieve distributive justice and ensure political equality and regime stability. This involves an uneasy compromise between equality and efficiency, a compromise that many argue has recently been undermined by the growth of unchecked wealth and income inequality. This paper argues that there also exists a trade-off between selecting fair processes for taxation and aiming for particular distributi...
