Private Law is Happening — John Goldberg

Post by: John Goldberg

Kudos to NPL blogger Daniel Markovits for assembling and hosting last week an excellent two-day conference at Yale Law School as the capstone to his Spring ’15 Private Law Seminar. (It is surely a good sign for the field that Harvard and Yale now both have established programs on private law.) 

Here was the line-up of panelists and readings, which encompassed an appropriately diverse yet overlapping set of topics and methodologies, and gave rise to excellent discussions.

1.   Law as a Means or as an End

2.   Motivations

  • Henry Smith (Harvard), Equity as Second-Order Law: The Problem of Opportunism
  • Rebecca Stone (UCLA), The Varieties of the Internal Point of View                
  • Daniel Viehoff (Sheffield), Reasons and Remedies                                                 

3.   Relations

4.   Private Ordering in Global Finance and Money
