On 14/15 April 2023, a workshop took place at the University of Arizona on canonical torts cases of the twenty-first century. The workshop was a collaboration between University of Arizona Law, Harvard Law, the Oxford Law Faculty, the Freedom Center, the American Law Institute and the Journal of Tort Law. Participants presented on a wide range of recent torts cases from the US and the UK. The Oxford-affiliated speakers comprised Professor Roderick Bagshaw (presenting on Fearn v Board of Trustees of the Tate Gallery), Professors James Goudkamp and Donal Nolan (presenting on Robinson v Chief Constable of West Yorkshire Police), Professor Jane Stapleton (presenting on The Financial Conduct Authority v Arch Insurance (UK) Ltd) and Professor Sandy Steel (presenting on Michael v Chief Constable of South Wales Police). The papers from the workshop will be published in the Journal of Tort Law in 2024.
