Tort Law as Cultural Practice
Author: David M. Engel,Michael McCann
Publisher: Stanford University Press
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.

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.

Author: David Engel,Jaruwan Engel
Publisher: Stanford University Press
This colorful portrait of law and society during a period of rapid social change reaches a counter-intuitive conclusion about the role of law in injury cases: globalization has led ordinary Thai people to turn away from courts and lawyers and to embrace a form of religious practice that leaves them without any remedy for harms they have suffered.

Private Law in Theory and Practice explores important theoretical issues in tort law, the law of contract and the law of unjust enrichment and relates the theory to judicial decision-making in these areas of private law. Topics covered include the politics and philosophy of tort law reform, the role of good faith in contract law, comparative perspectives on setting aside contracts for mistake and the theory and practice of proprietary remedies in the law of unjust enrichment. Contributors to the book bring a variety of theoretical approaches to bear on the analysis of private law. They include: economic analysis, corrective justice theory, comparative analysis of law, socio-legal inquiry, social history, political theory as well as doctrinal analysis of the law. In all cases the theoretical approaches are applied to recent case law developments in England, Australia and Canada, or, in the case of tort law, proposals in all these jurisdictions to reform the law. The book presents the theory of private law and the application of theory to practical legal problems in an accessible form to teachers and students of tort, contract and the law of unjust enrichment, legal researchers and law reformers.

The Skills & Values Series is an innovative hybrid series of subject-specific, practice-oriented books and online materials supported by Web Courses (powered by Blackboard 9.1). The series is designed as a tool for professors to teach practical and analytical skills that can help students serve future clients competently, skillfully, and in an ethical manner. Skills & Values: Torts allows students to experience the connection between theory, doctrine, and practice in Torts law. The exercises provide an opportunity for studying Torts concepts from the perspective of a practicing attorney who must not only know the law, but also employ lawyering skills and values -- such as legal strategy, factual development, advocacy, counseling, drafting, problem solving, and ethical principles -- in zealously representing a client. Each chapter in Skills & Values: Torts addresses a specific topic covered in most Torts law school courses. The chapters begin with an introduction to help bridge the gap between the actual practice of law and the doctrine and theory studied in class. Students will then have the opportunity to engage in active, "hands on" learning by working through a stand-alone exercise that simulates a real-life legal dilemma. The exercises are as authentic as possible, incorporating materials such as legal pleadings, motions, negotiations, correspondence, judicial opinions, statutes, discovery materials, and deposition excerpts. The self-assessment tools suggests ways that a practicing attorney might have approached each exercise. It is not meant to provide "the answer," but to identify issues and strategies students should have considered in order to effectively represent a client. The companion Web Course also contains: • forms to assist students to complete some of the exercises • video files • links to some of the key cases • multiple choice quiz questions • supplemental materials designed to increase students? understanding of both doctrine and practice. The text in the book will prompt readers to access the online Web Course materials when the materials are relevant to an exercise.
