           RISING STARS: A NEW GENERATION OF SCHOLARS LOOKS AT CIVIL JUSTICE

This is the 25th anniversary of the Clifford symposium on Tort Law and Social Policy. It seems an appropriate moment to ask a new, diverse and gifted generation of legal scholars to tell us what they think are the important questions in civil justice. This is not the first time the Symposium has gathered together an outstanding group of young stars. It did so ten years ago in 2009. The results then were so exciting that we could think of no finer wat yo celebrate 25 years than to mount another rising stars program.

The range of our faculty’s interests is broad. Some have chosen to focus on innovations in tort law or alternatives to solve problems that traditional doctrine has struggled over including future losses, the status of tort claims as property and the boundary between free speech and tort liability, to name but a few. Others among our faculty will be considering some of the explosive developments in civil procedure, particularly regarding class actions, questions of jurisdiction and the treatment of those labeled, for one reason or another, “foreign.”As the Symposium has regularly done in the past, there will be a set of presentations focusing on what social science tools can tell us about aspects of civil justice from emotional influences on decision making to the behavior of insurance markets. Finally, a number of our scholars will look at the plight of the “have nots,”individuals disadvantaged by our justice system on the basis of economic, social and racial considerations.

The Symposium will also be asking some of its distinguished alumni, already well-established stars, to comment on the young scholars’papers and provide their own thoughts on where legal scholarship and the law are headed in the near future. This group will include Professors Marc Galanter (Wisconsin), Michele Goodwin (UC Irvine), David Hyman (Georgetown), Robert Rabin (Stanford), Anthony Sebok (Cardozo) and Catherine Sharkey (NYU).
