Abstract

This article examines and criticises the way in which academic lawyers relate to the work of their colleagues. It does so by examining two recent reviews of A Theory of Tort Liability, one of which appeared in an earlier edition of this journal. It explains that, due to a lack of commitment to the principle of charity and a lack of engagement with the arguments of interlocutors, much academic disagreement misses its mark. The article suggests that for these reasons serious deficiencies exist within the discipline of academic lawyering.
