CLTDGSpeakers: Omid Eliott Yeganeh (Oxford)

Abstract: This article charts the relationship between tort liability and punishment. It draws on a conventional understanding of tort enjoined with a systematic account of punishment to argue that the central case of tort liability amounts to punishment. In doing so, the article challenges the mainstream proposition that punishment is a marginal feature of tort law. The article closes by briefly exploring possible implications of its thesis for the treatment of defendants in tort litigation.
