Schwartz Lecture with Ward Farnsworth - October 16, 2018

Ward Farnsworth, dean and John Jeffers Research Chair in Law at the University of Texas School of Law, was Reporter for the most recent Restatement of Torts, an influential treatise used by attorneys and judges that synthesizes general principles from tort cases. In his upcoming lecture, he will discuss the sometimes-contested role of writers of Restatements. He also will examine when a Reporter should fight for his own opinion or defer and draw lessons to be used in broader legal and political practice.
