Hello world!

This is my new blog on Private Law Theory. It is mainly an updater and point of contact for those working in the area.

Private Law Theory is an emerging discipline in law schools and elsewhere. Private law itself is a core set of disciplines within law, and can roughly be divided between Property Law (whether land, personal property, intellectual property …) and the Law of Obligations (Contract, Tort, Restitution …). Each different jurisdiction has its own version of these disciplines. Private Law Theory looks for theoretical perspectives to describe, explain and unify these areas. In doing so they typically draw on a number of the disciplines surrounding Law, such as Philosophy, Economics, History and Sociology.
