Litigation and litigation avoidance - tying ourselves in knots? with Sir Bernard Crick, Jon Holbrook, Philip K Howard, John Peysner and Claire Fox speaking at a panel discussion during the Institute of Ideas' The Battle of Ideas Conference 2006.Civil law is increasingly concerned not merely with especially important or complicated transactions such as marriage or major business deals, but with everyday life, regulating everything from school trips to adverts on TV. Relationships once considered beyond the purview of law are now scrutinized by armies of lawyers, often at the request of the parties involved. This has led to complaints about a litigious society in which people are too afraid of being sued to do anything that might result in a summons to court. Is litigation a necessary corrective to the perils of the free market? Is it a problem of ambulance-chasing lawyers and a litigation industry, or does our litigious culture point to a deeper problem of distrust and mutual suspicion between the public and our institutions? - IoICamera by David Dunbar for http://www.18doughtystreet.commoreless
