Conference: Restatement (Third) of Torts: Physical and Emotional Harm

Wake Forest University School of Law, the University of Texas School of Law, and the American Law Institute are sponsoring a Symposium on April 2-3 in Winston-Salem, North Carolina to discuss the upcoming Restatement (Third) of Torts: Physical and Emotional Harm. Coverage includes virtually all of the basic principles of tort law, including duty, negligence, factual causation (and the controversial Comment c on proof in toxic substances cases), scope of liability (proximate cause), duty to rescue, emotional harm, and land possessor duties.

Many of the leading torts scholars nationally and internationally will be present, as will the two co-Reporters for this Restatement. In addition, prominent American jurists and lawyers will gather to discuss and critique this Third Restatement of Torts. The schedule of events for this two-day conference is contained in the attached brochure.  Download tortbrochure1.pdf

Attendance is free, although there is a nominal charge for lunch. A block of hotel rooms has been reserved for those who desire to attend and need overnight accommodations.

For more information about the conference, and to register, visit or e-mail the Wake Forest Law Review at or Michael Green at
