In addition to reading John Finnis’s classic book on “Natural Law and Natural Rights” and attending Brian Leiter’s lectures on realist jurisprudence, I have been working on the following projects this summer:
- A Coasean analysis of the fair use doctrine, along with a brief critique of Mill’s theory of harms, which is titled “Of Coase and copyrights: the law and economics of literary fan art,” available on SSRN here.
- Addendum and revisions to my intellectual autobiography titled “Life, love, and law: confessions of a Cuban-American law professor” to commemorate my 20th year of teaching, research, and service. I have also included a photo gallery and posted this essay on SSRN here.
- Revisions to my forthcoming paper “So long suckers: bargaining and betrayal in Breaking Bad,” which will be published next month in The Journal of Strategic Contracting and Negotiation. I have posted this paper on SSRN here.
