The Liber Amicorum Pierre Widmer honours an outstanding tort lawyer and leading author of the recent reform of Swiss Tort Law. Renowned tort lawyers from 11 jurisdictions present questions of interest in tort law today. These include current reform projects in various European countries as well as EU-legislation.The book presents such essential topics as for example a view towards a unified European tort law, the position of insurers in the law of torts; as well as controversial issues in national legislations, compensation for immaterial damage, for household chores and for encroachment on the use of goods, questions concerning personal injury and death, product liability, problems of causation, the protection of privacy, the period of expiration, action of dependants, multiple tortfeasors, and no-fault compensation schemes. It also questions traditional legal rules such as 'ex turpi causa non oritur actio” and 'volenti non fit iniuria”.
