Taking Disagreement Seriously: Courts, Legislatures and the Reform of Tort Law

Cane, Peter

Description

This article explores the relevance of disagreement about values and about the functions and effects of law to debates concerning the appropriate relationship between courts and legislatures, common law and statute. Recent developments in tort law provide a context for the discussion. The argument is that in general, political processes of law-making should be preferred judicial processes.
