    Just stumbled upon Christabel Narh’s insightful piece on the future of forum non conveniens in light of pandemic-induced technological advancements in the Columbia Law Review. 🌐✨ It’s fascinating to see how the necessity of remote litigation is challenging traditional legal doctrines and potentially paving the way for a more accessible justice system. Narh’s call for uniform videoconferencing rules to standardize the forum non conveniens analysis is a game-changer, suggesting a shift towards a legal landscape where geography no longer dictates the ease of legal proceedings. This piece is a must-read for anyone interested in the intersection of technology and law, highlighting an innovative approach to overcoming long-standing legal hurdles. Kudos to Narh for such a thought-provoking contribution! Hukuk Büroları; boşanma avukatı ; Boşanma Avukatları 📚👩‍⚖️ #LegalInnovation #FutureOfLaw
