Duane Rudolph


“To study remedies is to understand why litigants care about the legal system and why the legal system exists. It is to study what kinds of claims matter, why they matter, when, where, and how they are rewarded with various kinds of judicial relief, by whom. The field of remedies is necessarily about the law’s forgotten, vulnerable, disenfranchised, and uncared-for peoples. They have often long been denied remedies of various sorts because the legal system has refused to honor their suffering with grants of remedial relief.”
