Dominic has a particular interest in advising, representing and supporting individuals, governmental and non-governmental organisations on national, regional and international norms regulating emerging, existing and evolving technologies. This includes small, unmanned aircraft on which he wrote a leading article: ‘Drones, Airprox and the Regulatory Environment: Cause for Concern?’
He is the editor of Jus Cogens, the online journal providing news, expert analysis and compelling opinion with an eye to the emergence, regulation and enforcement of hard and soft norms surrounding novel technologies. Dominic was a legal intern in national implementation measures at the Verification Research, Training and Information Centre, providing cost-free assistance to interested states for adherence to and legislative implementation of international instruments, including those focusing on chemical, biological, nuclear and radiological weapons and the security of related materials. He was also commissioned by Stephen Tromans QC – a leading practitioner in oil and gas exploration, nuclear and renewable energy – to assist with updating the seminal practitioner text: Nuclear Law (2010).
Dominic was awarded Distinction for the module ‘Law and the Technologies of the Twenty-First Century’ as part of a Master of Laws (LL.M) at King’s College London. He was taught by Professor Roger Brownsword: author of Law, Technology and Society: Re-imagining the Regulatory Environment (2019); founding general editor of the journal Law, Innovation and Technology; and on the editorial board of Modern Law Review, International Journal of Law and Information Technology, and Journal of Law and the Biosciences.
