Ever say to yourself: “I know there’s a word that comes next to liable, but I can’t think of which one…”?

Ever want to pull up tens of real-world examples of specific clauses (severability, forum selection, etc.)?

Then #corpora are for you.

Don't be fooled by the complicated name.

In reality, a #corpus is just a collection of texts.

All it takes is a simple search interface to comb through thousands of pages in just instants.
The search results give you an in-context list of how real-world drafters actually use the term you searched for.

The BYU corpora are good examples:

1⃣ COCA (U.S. English): english-corpora.org/coca/
2⃣ BNC (G.B. English): english-corpora.org/bnc/

It's not going to be the "brilliance of experts" that truly makes a difference right now to slow #COVID19.

It is going to be the actions of "regular" every day people becoming "experts" in the things we need most.

2/ Over the last year, I led the American Medical Association's @JournalofEthics issue on the ethics of pandemic response.

We focused on #Ebola, but ended up covering so many topics #journalism #anthropology #law #biosecurity #mentalhealth #epi etc

journalofethics.ama-assn.org/issue/culture-…
3/ If there is anything I learned in leading that effort, it was that there is no single epidemic "expert".

Not only do epidemics require working together across so many academic sectors; they require it across societies at all levels.

Everyone matters.

Justice B.N. #Srikrishna believes that the #law has to declare an #objective. Whatever procedure is declared are non-arbitrary. It leads us to a state where you or the state can look at everything we do and have access to everything we have.

Justice B.N. #Srikrishna on whether the Government has neglected the work of the #SrikrishnaCommittee, "It is too complicated to answer; the right thing was to get a special committee to debate on the Bill, and thankfully the #JPC was made."

A thread on E-commerce 🧵🧶

Here is how e-commerce really works in India. There are two major companies, 1: amazon 🥇2: Flipkart (owned by Walmart).🥈

they both are legally a marketplace. to understand it deeply you need to understand the FDI policy of India for e-commerce
In India e-commerce is divided into two models’
🎁(a): marketplace model ( NO inventory can be held by the marketplace ) and FDI in this model is 100%

🎁(B): inventory model (inventory can be controlled by the e-commerce company) and FDI in this model is 0 %.
India allows 100% FDI in B2B wholesale, so what amazon/ Flipkart do is, they buy products in bulks using their B2B arm from various brands and manufacturers then they add a layer of preferred sellers to whom they sell these products 🔜🔝🔛🔙🔚

Day 2 #Gambia v #Myanmar #ICJ begins, w/#ASSK up first. She declares #genocide is a crime, applied by #ICTR to #Rwanda but not to #Kosovo or #Croatia by #ICTY or #ICJ, because of a lack of dolus specialis.
Gambia has put fwd 'Incomplete & misleading factual picture'. Situation in #Rahkine is 'complex & not easy to fathom'. (same rhetoric as we have heard for years)
Complexities go back for yrs. Claims conflict btwn Arakan Army w/5000 fighters & the #Myanmar Army, w/Arakan Army seeking independence. The conflict has led to displacement & security measures such as curfew & checkpoints, applied to all regardless of background.

My most productive time in the day is the morning. And morning is the time I end up wasting very often, because I have the whole day to work, right?

#productive #Time #lawyers #law #lawsikho
When I was younger, I mostly worked late at night. I found that time to be serene and less distracting. Also, as I didn’t get the work done the entire day, sometimes I was just forced to work hard late at night.
I even got convinced that I am not a morning person, but someone who needs to stay up late and work. I called myself a night owl.

However, entertaining such fantasies while I was in college was easier.

It’s not my fault that the work is not done!

I always watch out for people who would not take responsibility for the end result and want to keep such people at bay.

#law #lawyers #lawstudents #learning #lawsikho
So does everyone who has the experience of handling a team, a business, or any responsible position.

There are two kinds of people out there - some of them have learned how to get things to work,
And there are those who can give you impeccable reasons for why things did not work.

I try to find how can I make things work when it is not supposed to work, and I have made a career out of it.

In the last one week, I have been to 3 cities and at least a dozen campuses. And I am clear that there are two kinds of people out there in our law colleges. This includes teachers, students, and administration.

#environment #victim #law #lawyers #lawsikho
There are some people who have come to believe that there are no opportunities, too many obstacles and that the sweet status quo is comfortable and they can sustain in it.
They remind everyone that better things are not possible and recount the number of past failures to justify no progress. They believe that luck and privilege is the key to all success, and there is no other way we can achieve any significant success.

I have been writing about habits for a while. Naturally, I have got many questions about what are the most important habits for lawyers to cultivate. I think this is a very important question.

#habits #successful #lawyers #law #lawsikho
I have been studying successful lawyers for a while, through my interviews on Superlawyer, or when I interview successful lawyers on our Legal Practice Management Course on what led to their success.
We also have a lot of such events at LawSikho office with top lawyers, clips of which interactions you can watch on the LawSikho YouTube channel here.

Concerned about the habit gaps in your life and career?

Want to build a habit? Great.

Want to kill a habit that has been slowing you down or harming you? Great.

#career #law #eLearning #lawsikho #habits
You need to understand how habit gets created and how they are perpetuated once the behavior is learned at the level of a habit.

It all starts with some kind of awareness.

Let’s say it’s a cigarette addiction. How is it going to start? I can speak from personal experience.
The first trigger is the awareness and the universal availability of cigarettes. Being aware of the existence of cigarettes is easy. Everyone knows. Cigarette companies make sure of that, through all sorts of promotional activities.

If #WeThePeople truly want to return the #USA to the #RuleOfLaw we need to let the #Justice system's processes unfold #Patiently. #Hearsay is not proof of #Guilt. You need #Evidence, & you need a #Trial. #Constitution #DOJ #Law
But the case of #Dershowitz is even more fraught with risk. Because he is a #Lawyer and a #Law #scholar/#professor, & he has been hired by some of those charged to #Defend them, the #DOJ cannot allow anything which appears like #Obstruction of #Justice. Let the #RuleOfLaw unfold
If #Dershowitz's clients are #Guilty, then it will be #proven in a #fair #trial. Then, if there really is some evidence that he did something wrong, it will come out. Accepting a free #Plane ride is not wrong. Visiting an #Island is not wrong.

Stress, anxiety and depression are not uncommon in a lawyer’s life. According to a survey conducted in the USA by John Hopkins University in the 1990s, lawyers are 3.6 times more prone to depression than other people.

#stressed #Anxiety #depression #Lawyers #law #lawsikho
India is the country with maximum depression in the world according to recent reports. I know a few things about that.
I have been working as a lawyer since 2012 and have been fighting depression for quite some years now.
My lived experience tells me that depression is not uncommon in the legal sector of India. When I talk about it, people around me opens up and confides in me about their troubles. After all, being a lawyer is a demanding job.

WHY @ATIKU’s VICTORY AT THE SUPREME COURT IS A DONE DEAL [Part 3]
#Justice4Atiku In 2017, Mary Odili JSC, Sidi Bage JSC retd & Co & in 2018, Ejembi Eko JSC, & John Inyang Okoro JSC & Co passed a Landmark supreme court judgment on FALSE DECLARATION IN INEC FORM #CF001
This judgement is giving #Buhari high BP as #Atiku dragged him to the Supreme Court. It's one of the massive 50.9 magnitude earthquake waiting for #Buhari and the #APC at the Supreme Court. #Buhari's alleged forged certificates contain riotous, notorious & dubious information
There are 6 subjects in one & 8 subjects in another all in the same exams & sitting. No explanation was given either in writing or in Oral for these differences. This is exactly what led to Modibbo's disqualification in the case of Modibbo vs Mustapha in July 2019 by the SCN

@CNNSotu Oddly, you discuss #eugenics in America in the 1920s, but you never mention #MargaretSanger, the founder of @PPFA, and her approval of #GermanEugenicSterilzation, #KKK, and other efforts to eliminate the production of offspring by the #unfit.
I say, "oddly" with respect to your omission because Sanger's love affair with #eugenics ran so deeply through her activism that it constituted a part of the masthead of her "Birth Control Review."
Sanger didn't pull punches about the intended use of #eugenic #sterilization:

"There is only one reply to a request for a higher birthrate among the intelligent, and that is to ask the government to first take off the burdens of the insane and the feeble-minded from your backs."
