This Foreword explains the topic of this symposium, the American Law Institute's Reporters' Study on Enterprise Responsibility for Personal Injury, published in 1991. This Study assesses the American tort system a quarter-century after the appearance of the ALI's Restatement (Second) of Torts. The authors of the Foreword discuss the two most striking developments in personal injury law in that time: the adoption of strict products liability and the enactment of no-fault automobile compensation plans. The Foreword addresses the principal focus of the Articles to follow, which are the diverse reforms suggested by the Study, including products liability, medical no-fault, and damages proposals.
