In my experience as a lawyer working on finance and banking transactions (once upon a time, I have also been a lecturer in Banking Law), I am used to see that certain topics are often considered only from the economic or financial perspectives, without considering the legal issues. This causes often the paradox that even scholars and lawyers focus their attention more on the description of the economic phenomenon than on the identification of the legal effects and consequences that the phenomenon requires.
While the case in fact is always the starting point of every lawyer and judge (an ancient Latin saying goes “tell me about the fact, I will say the applicable rule” (narra mihi factum, tibi dabo jus)”, the analysis of the applicable legal framework is essential to ensure legal protection and, if the circumstances so require, ask for law making.
This has been my approach in editing the book “Fashion Law and Sustainability”, the need to determine what kind of rules make fashion sustainable.
