The world is going through a period of rapid change and serious upheaval. The law of torts (or civil wrongs) provides mechanisms to maintain social standards and redress wrongdoing. While torts law must go with the times to maintain its vitality and relevance, adaptation is notoriously difficult and sometimes lagging behind social, economic or cultural developments.
The CCTL Obligations Lab Asia is organising an conference as a platform for exchange on these issues. The online conference “Torts Law Reform in Asia and Beyond” conference explores how legislators and courts respond to the constant need to keep civil liability rules up-to-date. Amongst other topics, there will be sessions focusing on developments in professional negligence, strict liability torts, tort law and AI, and other emerging issues.
