This book is a collection of re-written existing judgments and hypothetical judgments, that offer a ‘wild law’ perspective. The term ‘wild law’ names the specific challenges of aligning existing Western legal systems with Thomas Berry’s philosophy of Earth jurisprudence. Based upon ecocentric rather than human-centred or anthropocentric principles, this jurisprudence poses a unique critical challenge to the dominant focus and orientation of the common law.
Drawing its inspiration from various feminist judgment projects, this book opens up judicial decision-making to critical scrutiny from a wild law or Earth-centred perspective. In this respect, its experiment with different forms and processes for wild judicial decision-making, unsettles the anthropocentric and property rights assumptions embedded in existing common law, by placing Earth and the greater community of life at the centre of its judgments.
Covering areas as diverse as tort law, corporations law, criminal law, environmental law, administrative law, international law, native title law and constitutional law, this unique and innovative collection will provide a valuable tool for practitioners and students who are interested in learning more about the emerging ecological jurisprudence movement, and in helping to create a new system of law in which Earth really matters.
