Essays for Patrick Atiyah

Synopsis

One of the most important legal scholars of his generation, Patrick Atiyah's publications cover many topics: legal theory and history, the study of legal institutions, tort law (especially personal injury compensation), and contract law. This volume of essays--written by colleagues, friends, and admirers of Atiyah--reflects the breadth of his interests. The work includes discussions of aspects and theories of contracts and torts, the role of judges and law professors, as well as an assessment of the "law in context" movement of which Atiyah was a founder.
