Tort Law as Cultural Practice

Tort 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.

The 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. His scholarship includes over a dozen books on law practice and legal education. The State Bar of Michigan gave Dean Miller the John W. Cummiskey Award for pro bono service. Paul Sorensen is a Professor at Thomas M. Cooley Law School. Before joining Cooley, he practiced law for 30 years, specializing in civil litigation. He is a past President of the Federal Bar Association West Michigan Chapter and the Grand Rapids Bar Association, which gave him its President's Award for service. He is in the Best Lawyers in America and Michigan Super Lawyers for his leadership and civil-litigation work. Karen Chadwick is a Professor at Thomas M. Cooley Law School. Before joining Cooley, she was Associate General Counsel at Plastech Engineered Products and at the Detroit law firm Butzel Long, P.C. Professor Chadwick also taught for many years at both Wayne State University Law School and University of Detroit-Mercy Law School. Professor Chadwick's practice areas have included products liability, commercial litigation, and worker's compensation. She publishes frequently in leading journals on tort-law subjects. Monica Nuckolls is an Associate Professor at Thomas M. Cooley Law School. Before joining Cooley, she worked at two of Michigan's largest law firms, specializing in commercial litigation. Professor Nuckolls has co-authored several books aimed toward teaching young people about the law and promoting responsible citizenship. She is a past recipient of the State Bar of Michigan's prestigious Champion of Justice Award and the NAACP (Saginaw Branch) Community Service Award. Professor Nuckolls is listed in Who's Who in Law Academia.

Tort, Custom, and Karma

Globalization and Legal Consciousness in Thailand

Diverse societies are now connected by globalization, but how do ordinary people feel about law as they cope day-to-day with a transformed world? Tort, Custom, and Karma examines how rapid societal changes, economic development, and integration into global markets have affected ordinary people's perceptions of law, with a special focus on the narratives of men and women who have suffered serious injuries in the province of Chiangmai, Thailand. This work embraces neither the conventional view that increasing global connections spread the spirit of liberal legalism, nor its antithesis that backlash to interconnection leads to ideologies such as religious fundamentalism. Instead, it looks specifically at how a person's changing ideas of community, legal justice, and religious belief in turn transform the role of law particularly as a viable form of redress for injury. This revealing look at fundamental shifts in the interconnections between globalization, state law, and customary practices uncovers a pattern of increasing remoteness from law that deserves immediate attention.

The Interaction of Contract Law and Tort and Property Law in Europe

A Comparative Study

Page: 573

Against 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.
