The Right of Redress Book Launch and Panel Discussion

A Conversation with author Andrew GoldProfessor of Law, Brooklyn Law School

About the Book


The law enables private parties to undo the wrongs committed against them, allowing them to seek redress. Moreover, a distinctive kind of justice governs our legal rights of redress, different from the leading corrective justice approaches. Through analysis of these key ideas, The Right of Redress (Oxford University Press, 2020) helps to make sense of tort, contract, fiduciary law, and unjust enrichment doctrine. The Right of Redress offers a pathbreaking account of the justice in private law, the political theory that underlies it, and the contemporary features that shape the field today.

This program will be an hour and a half Zoom discussion with ample opportunity for audience questions.
