    The presentation will be very brief and most of the time devoted to a discussion of all the aspects of this crucial junction, and I look forward to learned, provocative and instructive participation...
    There is no paper as such, but PLEASE peruse the docs indicated below. The discussion will be helpful to the extent that positions and facts on a basic level need not be repeated, and we can work on the broader normative implications.

    Faculty Seminar with Dr. Avihay Dorfman,                                                      
    Abstract: The most compelling defense of the standard of reasonable care in negligence law casts itself in terms of equality.  According to this view, the law conceives of the parties to a tort interaction as equals, since it fixes the contours of reasonableness by reference to what any reasonable person ought to do under the circumstances, irrespective of the competency, trait, or good-will of the actual parties.  This commitment to equality may paradoxically turn out to be flatly inegalitarian.  This is because it discriminates against the less capable through ignoring their deficient capabilities (and so against their chances of meeting the standard of reasonable care successfully).  The standard way out of this embarrassment takes the form of exempting certain classes of incompetency from the demands of reasonable care.  However, this strategy of rescuing equality through exclusion is straightforwardly unattractive.  A more promising, though still unfamiliar, way to revive the egalitarian aspirations of reasonable care would be to show that imposing the standard of reasonable care even on the less competent expresses, rather than inhibits, a true devotion to equality.  I seek to make this showing, and thus to reclaim for this standard of care its egalitarian foundations more adequately than has so far been possible.  My account establishes that an important feature of what it means to be treated as equals by the law is the recognition of tort-feasors as duty-bound, as persons who are equally accountable for their failure to meet the requirement of appropriate conduct expected from all (here, exercising reasonable care).  Moreover, this recognitional aspect of equality, I argue, is no mere formal ideal.  Rather, it requires the integration of private law’s traditional norms of respect for the moral equality of each person with public law’s substantial efforts at ameliorating inequalities.  Finally, this novel approach generates important insights into the practice of reasonable care in common law negligence, settling certain unresolved doctrinal difficulties.  Among other things, it explains on grounds of equality the widely neglected distinction between the standards of care applicable to physically disabled tort-feasors, on the one hand, and tort-victims, on the other.            29/12/2010

    Faculty Seminar, Dr. Jonathan Yovel - Relational Formalism,
    Legal formalism and legal relationalism are traditionally thought of as defining opposite poles of jurisprudential analysis. This study develops the notion of “relational formalism” as it emerges from practices of commercial law and from linguistic theory. As an interpretation of practice, relational formalism—although maintaining the precedence of formalist construction over functional analysis—does so while responding to practical concerns and interests entailed by relations. It argues that legal formalism needs not be an expression of positivistic commitments, can be approached on relational grounds, and must respond to those.
    The portion of the study offered here analyzes a problem of negotiable instruments law to support both the tenability of relational formalism and its theoretical and practical fruitfulness. It then uses performative linguistics to sustain a relational construction of formalism. Finally, it claims that tacit judicial divergence over the interpretation of—and commitment to—formalism, rather than doctrinal differences, sometimes explains conflicting outcomes in similar cases.

    Here are brief introduction of Sugarman article "Performance-Based Regulation":
    "I am starting to write a book on the application of what I call 'performance-based-regulation' to a wide range of safety and public health issues.  This paper (which was published a few weeks ago) begins that effort by discussing how my approach could be applied to certain industries that sell consumer products that are responsible for a very significant share of early deaths (at least in many countries). Now I am thinking about applying this approach to workplace safety, hospital patient safety, and more. I would be very happy to have feedback on the general concept as well as implementation issues, and to discuss with you how it compares with fault-based tort law, strict liability, taxation, conventional regulation and other approaches to safety and health."
