Global Law Workshop
3:00 - 4:30 • Room 4042
Prof. Eric A. Feldman
Prof. Feldman of University of Pennsylvania Law School will examine conflict over injuries caused by medical care in Japan, using it as a window through which to view the relationship between tort law and its social, economic, and political context. Allegations of medical malpractice in Japan have been rapidly rising. What explains the increasing willingness of victims of malpractice to sue their medical providers? And what (if anything) does the acceleration of medical malpractice litigation suggest about the changing importance of the formal legal system in the lives of ordinary Japanese citizens?
The Global Law Workshop, organized this semester by Prof. Ralf Michaels, is Duke Law's speaker series in international and comparative law. It is a class students take for credit but all members of the Duke community are welcome.
To receive the paper which will be the topic of discussion, please contact Neylan Gurel at firstname.lastname@example.org.
