In this book leading scholars from the United Kingdom, the United States and Australia challenge established common law rules and suggest new approaches to both old and emerging problems in tort law. Some of the chapters consider broad issues such as the importance of flexibility over certainty in tort law, connections between tort law and human flourishing and the indirect effects of changes in tort law. Other chapters engage more specific topics including the role of vindication in tort law, the relationship between criminal law and tort law, the use of epidemiological evidence in analysing causation, accessory liability in tort law, the role of malice in intentional torts and the role of statutes in tort law. They propose new approaches to contributory negligence, emotional distress, loss of a chance, damages for nuisance, the tort of conspiracy and vicarious liability. The chapters in this book were originally presented at the Sixth Biennial Conference on the Law of Obligations at Western University in London, Ontario in July 2012. They will be highly useful to lawyers, judges and scholars across the common law world.
eine Untersuchung zum deutschen Recht, zum Europa- und Völkerrecht
Author: Marten Breuer
Publisher: Mohr Siebeck
English summary: The issue of state liability for judicial wrongs has attracted much attention due to the ECJ's judgment in the Kobler case. The need for a dogmatic explanatory model is not restricted to European law but concerns national (constitutional) law and public international law in equal measure. German description: Die Frage nach der Staatshaftung fur judikatives Unrecht betrifft eine besonders komplexe Thematik. Einerseits besteht offenkundig die Gefahr, durch Zulassung der Haftung des Staates (nicht des Richters als Individuum) fur behauptete richterliche Fehlentscheidungen den regularen Instanzenzug zu unterlaufen und einen regressus ad infinitum zu eroffnen. Andererseits sehen sowohl die deutsche als auch die meisten europaischen Rechtsordnungen in gewissen Fallkonstellationen eine Haftung fur judikatives Unrecht vor. Erforderlich ist daher ein dogmatisches Modell, das Grund und Grenzen der Staatshaftung fur judikatives Unrecht zu bestimmen vermag. Marten Breuer entwirft dieses Modell zunachst fur die deutsche Rechtsordnung und untersucht anschliessend dessen Ubertragbarkeit auf das Europa- und Volkerrecht. Hierdurch erfahrt die Thematik erstmals eine rechtsordnungsubergreifenden Analyse.
This title was first published in 2002. The first series of The International Library of Essays in Law and Legal Theory has established itself as a major research resource.

The new series follows the successful pattern established in the first of reproducing entire essays with the original page numbers as an aid to comprehensive research and accurate referencing.

Each volume has an introduction which explains the context and the significance of the essays chosen.
The fifth edition of Lunney and Oliphant's market-leading tort law text provides a complete, authoritative guide to the subject. The book combines clear overviews of the law with well-chosen extracts from cases and materials supported by insightful commentary.
This exceptional collection of twenty-two essays on the philosophical fundamentals of tort law assembles many of the world's leading commentators on this particularly fascinating conjunction of law and philosophy. The contributions range broadly, from inquiries into how tort law derives from Aristotle, Aquinas, and Kant to the latest economic and rights-based theories of legal reponsibility. This is truly a multi-national production, with contributions from several distinguished Oxford scholars of law and philosophy and many prominent scholars from the United States, Canada, and Israel. A provocative closing essay by one of the world's leading moral philosophers illuminates how tort law enables philosophers to observe the abstract theories of their discipline put to the concrete test in the legal resolution of real-world controversies based on principles of right and wrong.

The essays in this volume are the result of a project on Values in Tort Law directed by the Westminster Institute for Ethics and Human Values. We are indebted to the Board of Westminster Col lege for its financial support. The project involved two meetings of a mixed group of lawyers and philosophers to discuss drafts of papers and general issues in tort law. Beyond the principal researchers, whose papers appear here, we are grateful to John Bargo, Dick Bronaugh, Craig Brown, Earl Cherniak, Bruce Feldthusen, Barry Hoffmaster and Steve Sharzer for their helpful discussion, and to Nancy Margolis for copy editing. All of these papers except one have appeared before in the journal Law and Philosophy (Vol. 1 No.3, December 1982 and Vol. 2 No.1, Apri11983). Chapman's paper which was previously published in The University of Western Ontario Law Review (Vol. 20 No.1, 1982) appears here with permission.
