The pharmaceutical industry has deeply contributed to human welfare. Indeed, new drug enforcement has played a vital role in increasing longevity and enhancing the quality of life. For this reason, issues of justice are particularly sharp, especially concerning the accessibility of drugs to the people who desperately need them. 

The question that is raised is whether the drug market should be completely free or be subject to state intervention and if the answer to the question is the second option, it is then necessary to analyse which is the most efficient and right way to intervene. This article focuses on the role of intellectual property rights and patents in the development and accessibility of new pharmaceuticals.

It is for the coroners to shed light upon this matter when death occurs (Article 2 of Law no. 104/2003, Article 185, Paragraph 8 of Law no. 135/2010), and that is by excluding the possible signs of life and recognizing the first stages of death through examination of the corpse.

The Korean Peninsula has been a tension hotspot for decades, with Kim Jong-un’s regime being the most dangerous and unpredictable force in the region.

What we are witnessing today is digitalization replacing large archives of law cases and libraries; start-ups becoming new law offices; software making internet new place for dispute resolution; smart contracts guaranteeing deal enforcement and Artificial Intelligence seems to be what we needed for data analysis.  

First steps toward these changes have been made through digital and online databases. It made research much easier for everyone in legal practice. Lawyers can access databases to find regulations, precedents or verdicts based on keywords related to a case they are building.
