2009 comparative scholarship on mass torts

The 2009 scholarship roundup published by the Mass Tort Litigation Blog lists three papers that address mass torts from a comparative perspective. Seeing papers discussing mass torts from a comparative angle is certainly good news as, traditionally, American legal scholarship and law school curricula have ignored (sometimes even dismissed) such valuable perspective. Here are some of the papers (for the complete list):

  • Richard Nagareda, Aggregate Litigation Across the Atlantic and the Future of American Exceptionalism, 62 Vand. L. Rev. 1 (2009)
  • Samuel Issacharoff, Will Aggregate Litigation Come to Europe? 62 Vand L. Rev. 179 (2009)
  • Angel Oquendo, Upping the Ante: Collective Litigation in Latin America, 47 Columb. J. Tranational L. 248 (2009)
