The Challenges Of Implementing A Governing Body For Regulating Esports, Jacqueline Martinelli

University of Miami International and Comparative Law Review

This paper will discuss the recent growth in the esports industry and the challenges in developing a single regulatory model. Currently, there are multiple organizations that claim to govern the esports industry, but they all cover different areas of the sport which causes them to lack cohesion. These organizations lack the enforcement mechanism needed to back up the regulations that they propose. This creates a legitimacy issue at the same time that concerns over corruption continue to grow.

Regulating The Blue Revolution: A Sea Of Change For The United States’ Offshore Aquaculture Industry Or A Missed Opportunity For Increased Sustainability, Elan Lowenstein

University of Miami International and Comparative Law Review

Aquaculture has the potential to be one of the most efficient methods of food production to date. In recent years, the developments in offshore finfish aquaculture have proven to be more environmentally friendly than large-scale terrestrial animal farming, requiring a fraction of resources such as freshwater which are becoming more scarce in the face of global population growth, while also relieving pressures on wild fisheries. The United States is one of the largest global consumers of seafood, importing about ninety-percent of its supply. The current regulatory framework for offshore aquaculture in the United States is effectively non-existent. Federal courts have ...

Blame It On The Blockchain: Cryptocurrencies Boom Amidst Global Regulations, Jorge Galavis

University of Miami International and Comparative Law Review

Blockchain technologies created the most valuable digital currency in the world; Bitcoin. Bitcoin uses a Blockchain to be decentralized and widely accessible: Blockchains work by recording all transactions into online ledgers that are saved onto many separate blocks across the internet. Coins that use Blockchain technology are inherently difficult to modify, and transactions are permanently recorded because of the redundancy and reliability of the Blockchain system. So, this widely-available means of exchange has gained appeal as an online alternative to traditional currencies and securities. Blockchain coins gain popularity as currencies where there is reason to doubt the existing traditional currencies ...

Process & Industrial Developments Limited V. Nigeria: Exception Under The Fsia When Award Has Been Set Aside By A Court Of The Country “Under The Law Of Which” The Award Was Made, Ndifreke Uwem

University of Miami International and Comparative Law Review

In March 2018, Process & Industrial Developments Limited (P&ID) filed a petition at the United States District Court for the District of Columbia to confirm an arbitral award against the Federal Republic of Nigeria. The proceedings were conducted in three phases – jurisdictional, liability, and damages. The arbitration provision in the underlying contract hardly represented a model of clarity. It provided for the application of the Nigerian arbitration act to any dispute between the parties. On the other hand, it specified London as the “venue” of the proceedings. This posed a problem as to whether Nigeria was the juridical seat of ...
