From the Editor...

Welcome to the JURIST Torts Guide.

First, I hope this will become a useful space as you research in Tort law. Conventional research resources have rendered transparent most tort law doctrine. However, as teachers and researchers we will increasingly contextualize our subject area, increasing the value of web content. This area of JURIST starts from an inclusive position, and currently I view it as a container for areas as diverse as products liability, professional malpractice and mass torts.

Second, I view this space as an opportunity to explore the growth of Cybertorts issues. As internet-related litigation proceeds down the road to maturity we will see an increase in cyberspace-based fact-patterns implicating Tort law and we will need to reflect on the appropriateness of our current doctrinal structures. To give two concrete examples, I believe that the migration of consumer services (such as cybermedicine) to the web will jump-start inquiries into cybertorts. Second, I anticipate many of our doctrinal tenets (such as foreseeability in the face of web site personalization and consumer targeting) will require reassessment when applied to cyberspace fact-patterns.
