Professor Paul Miller and Professor John Oberdiek of Rutgers Law School have published an important new collection of essays on private law theory with Oxford University Press.

The recently released volume – Civil Wrongs and Justice in Private Law – includes leading voices in the field from six countries and four continents. Chapters collected in the volume address questions about the nature of, and relationship between, civil wrongs and justice in private law from the perspective of different fields of private law, from tort and property law, to contract law and equity.

Drafts of the chapters were presented at a workshop at Rutgers that was jointly supported by the Notre Dame Program on Private Law and the Rutgers Institute for Law and Philosophy
