Distributive Justice Through Tort (And Why Sociolegal Scholars Should Care)

Brooklyn Law School

February 14, 2010

Law of Social Inquiry, Vol. 35, No. 2, 2010
Brooklyn Law School, Legal Studies Paper No. 189

Abstract:     
Drawing on two books central to an emerging sociolegal literature about tort-Fault Lines: Tort Law as Cultural Practice, a collection of chapters edited by David M. Engel and Michael McCann, and Torts, Egalitarianism and Distributive Justice, a monograph by Tsachi Keren-Paz–this essay argues that tort law in the United States redistributes wealth in ways that ought to trouble sociolegal scholars and enlist their reformist energy. Read together, the two volumes offer considerable description and critique of a distributive injustice, and lead to important proposals for change.
