Evolving Personal Torts: An Introduction
The law of torts is more dynamic than ever. This is a consequence of an increasingly interdependent, ever-busier, and rapidly changing world, in which the civil law has an important continuing role to play in ensuring minimum standards of interaction between persons and in compensating for wrongs committed. Typically, courts must make their decisions in the absence of comprehensive legislative guidance. The genius of the common law of torts is its ability to respond to cases as they arise, while principles are worked up iteratively over time. Courts are assisted in their task by the ability to compare developments across different jurisdictions and in their partnership with the academic community.
