Description - The Political Economy of Personal Injury Law by Peter Cane
This is the second volume in the annual McPherson Lecture Series, inaugurated by the University of Queensland TC Beirne Law School, which hosts a celebrated international scholar or legal expert to deliver a series of three lectures. In the first two of these thought-provoking lectures, Peter Cane examines the political and economic significance of personal injury law. In his final lecture, he explores the possible future role of tort law as a way of dealing with the social problem of personal injury. He questions whether tort law should provide compensation for non-monetary harm resulting from personal injury, while acknowledging that it would continue to feature as one element of a mixed regime for dealing with personal injuries comprising a range of diverse regulatory and compensatory arrangements.
