Legal Gaps: Legislative Mistakes or Something Unavoidable?
28 June 2022
11:30—12:30
There’s a great deal of activity taking place in lawmaking in the world today. The adoption of new laws is justified by the importance of legal development in the era of digitalisation, the modernisation of technology, the emergence of new transferable items, the increasing complexity of relations, or economic trends, and therefore by the need to eliminate legal contradictions and gaps. There has been an exponential increase in regulation at the level of secondary legislation and in the number of technical regulations. But does this really mean that the scope of the norms adopted is directly proportional to existing and emerging legal gaps? How important are legal and statutory analogy and general and sectoral legal principles in the application of the law? Will technological regulation and the free flow of technology rights eventually supplant law as a priority social regulator in the digital environment? What role do courts play in filling legal gaps? Is there a formula for success in understanding and applying the law in practice? The discussion, which is a continuation of SPILF’s well-established series of Alekseyevskoye Legacy Project events, will look to discuss basic approaches to understanding legal gaps and how to fill them and identify effective models for interpreting and applying norms in today’s world.
