1. Torts and Compensation Section Newsletter

As most of you know, our section publishes a newsletter each fall listing (1) symposia related to tort law, (2) recent law review articles on tort law, (3) selected articles from Commonwealth countries on tort law, and (4) books relating to tort law. If you know of any works that should be included, please forward relevant citations and other information to me at The deadline for inclusion is September 1, 2014. 

2.  2015 William L. Prosser Award

This is the first call for nominations for the 2015 William L. Prosser Award. The award recognizes “outstanding contributions of law teachers in scholarship, teaching and service” in torts and compensation systems.

Past recipients include scholars such as Leon Green, Wex Malone, and John Wade.

Any law professor is eligible to nominate another law professor for the award. Nominators can renew past nominations by resubmitting materials. Selection of the recipient will be made by members of the Executive Committee of the Torts & Compensation Systems section, based on the recommendation of a special selection committee. The award will be presented at the annual AALS meeting in January 2015.
