American Museum of Tort Law Moves Online

Due to the pandemic, the AMTL is going virtual.  Rick Newman is in the process of taking the museum online.  Although it is not finished, a preview is available here.  One of the features is interviews with scholars about particularly important tort cases.  The museum is currently editing those interviews, but two are already available on the museum's YouTube channel (Anita Bernstein on T.J. Hooper and Tony Sebok on Tarasoff).  This is an expensive endeavor; you can donate here.  The full list of cases and scholars is here:
