Professor Steinman’s article, Irregulars: The Appellate Rights of Persons Who are Not Full-Fledged Parties, is in progress.

Richard Wright has been invited to write several entries (Causation in Tort Law; Tort Law and Insurance; Negligence; Fault; and Rationality and Reasonableness) for a forthcoming online Encyclopedia of Legal Theory that is being produced by the International Association for Philosophy of Law and Social Philosophy. He will meet with approximately 20 other internationally prominent legal theorists at the University of Lund, Sweden, in December 2004 to help structure the encyclopedia and its entries.

Professor Wright is also working on several articles and books on the basic principles of tort liability and legal reasoning and adjudication.
