Host Daithí Mac Síthigh is a graduate student at the School of Law, Trinity College Dublin, and publishes the blog Lex Ferenda, where he explores his interests–and demonstrates his considerable knowledge– in cyberlaw, media, and intellectual property.
Curious about the meaning of the name of Daithí’s blog? The wise and anonymous editor of Blawg Review tells us that
Lex ferenda (also called de lege ferenda) is a Latin expression that means “what the law ought to be” (as opposed to lex lata, “the law as it exists”).
(But those of you who still remember your high school Latin or have your old law school dictionary handy probably knew that already.)
