In 1986 a number of prominent legal scholars embarked upon a project commissioned by the American Law Institute to re-examine contemporary tort and personal injury law. Five years later, the results of this project came to fruition in a two-volume study entitled Reporters' Study on Enterprise Responsibility for Personal Injury. After a year's debate within the American Law Institute about the broad range of issues canvassed by the Study, the Institute's Executive Council endorsed the value of the Study for deliberations about tort reform going on in both legislative and judicial forums. This is the introductory chapter of each volume of the Reporters' Study on Enterprise Responsibility for Personal Injury, published in 1991.
