Three Essays on Torts

Jane Stapleton

Clarendon Law Lectures

  • Champions 'reflexive tort scholarship' focusing on the role of the judiciary
  • Explains why descriptive claims of Grand Theories of tort law are doomed to fail
  • Advances a conception of a 'living' common law, evolving with changes in society and independently of institutional pronouncements
  • Suggests that the reason private law truncates responsibility for the consequences of the violation of a norm lies in the boundedness of the concept of legal personhood
