Tort Law as Cultural Practice
Author: David M. Engel,Michael McCann
Publisher: Stanford University Press
View: 4050Tort law, a fundamental building block of every legal system, features prominently in mass culture and political debates. As this pioneering anthology reveals, tort law is not simply a collection of legal rules and procedures, but a set of cultural responses to the broader problems of risk, injury, assignment of responsibility, compensation, valuation, and obligation. Examining tort law as a cultural phenomenon and a form of cultural practice, this work makes explicit comparisons of tort law across space and time, looking at the United States, Europe, and Asia in the nineteenth, twentieth, and twenty-first centuries. It draws on theories and methods from law, sociology, political science, and anthropology to offer a truly interdisciplinary, pathbreaking view. Ultimately, tort law, the authors show, nests within a larger web of relationships and shared discursive conventions that organize social life.

View: 9747The authors designed this book on current education research. The book includes learner objectives, law summaries, skills and ethics paths, legal-analysis instruction, torts-practice vignettes and materials, case studies, and torts-career advice. Its design is to help you place torts doctrine in its practice context, develop a professional identity, and give you greater control over your learning. In its report Educating Lawyers, the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching urged reforms to integrate skills and ethics into the doctrinal dimension of law, to foster an apprenticeship of practice. This book is an example of the innovation that gives Cooley Law School its preeminence at practice preparation. About the Authors: Nelson Miller is an Associate Dean at Thomas M. Cooley Law School. Before joining Cooley, he practiced civil litigation for over a decade-and-a-half in a small firm, winning and defending multi-million-dollar jury trials in torts cases.

Author: Eoin Quill,Raymond J Friel
Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing
View: 9847The focus of the essays in this book is on the relationship between compensation culture, social values and tort damages for personal injuries. A central concern of the public and political perception of personal injuries claims is the high cost of tort claims to society, reflected in insurance premiums, often accompanied by an assumption that tort law and practice is flawed and improperly raising such costs. The aims of this collection are to first clarify the relationship between tort damages for personal injuries and the social values that the law seeks to reflect and to balance, then to critically assess tort reforms, including both proposals for reform and actual implemented reforms, in light of how they advance or hinder those values. Reforms of substantive and procedural law in respect of personal injury damages are analysed, with perspectives from England and Wales, Canada, Australia, Ireland and continental Europe. The essays offer valuable insights to anyone interested in the reform of tort law or the tort process in respect of personal injuries.

Globalization and Legal Consciousness in Thailand

View: 6145This colorful portrait of law and society during a period of rapid social change reaches a counter-intuitive conclusion about the role of law in injury cases: globalization has led ordinary Thai people to turn away from courts and lawyers and to embrace a form of religious practice that leaves them without any remedy for harms they have suffered.
A Comparative Study
Author: Christian von Bar,Ulrich Drobnig
Publisher: Walter de Gruyter
View: 3800Against the background of the creation of an EU-wide frame of reference for private law relevant to the Common Market, this study, which was requested by the EU Commission, analyses the dovetailing between contract and tort law on the one hand, and between contract and property law on the other. The study examines the legal orders of almost all the Member States of the EU, illustrates the differences between contractual and non-contractual liability and evaluates the different systems of the transfer of property, of movable and immovable securities as well as trust law. The study comes to the conclusion that the intensive considerations on the creation of a model-law in the area of European private law do not allow these thoughts to be limited to contract law. Such a limitation to the scope of the regarding of this area would probably cause more problems than it would solve, or at any rate not do justice to the needs of the Common Market.
