This volume contains essays on tort theory published in law journals since 1990. The essays explore notions of justice that inform the doctrines and institutions of tort law. Many of these essays explicitly evoke the idea of corrective justice. Others explore ideas of responsibility and fairness. Although the authors of these essays are frequently in disagreement with one another, they share a common interest in treating law as a normative phenomenon that is to be understood in moral terms.
