Tort Theory

This seminar will explore the nature of tort law. Most generally, we will try to figure out whether tort law aims at efficiency or justice. But we will also take up philosophical questions about particular features of tort doctrine, among them, the choice between strict liability and negligence, the nature of causation, and the role that luck plays in attributions of responsibility.
