Allan Beever, ‘Tort Law and The Tort System: From Vindictiveness to Vindication’

Conclusion
“… In the presence of alternative mechanisms for ensuring compensation, it is possible then to imagine a tort law in which the concept of vindication was to the fore, and compensation was minimised or even forgotten, or left to more effective and just means. That would remain a system of tort law consistent with corrective justice, and it would, I suggest, be a law that succeeded in furthering the cause of human freedom … It would be a law that was actually true to itself and the only form of justice that it is equipped to promote” (video).
