They relate to pecuniary loss for life and for loss of earnings to pension age, both for males and females at different ages. The edition includes a section covering discounts to the working life multiplier for contingencies other than mortality, based on two recent research studies.

Reflection, Ignorance, and Agency

John M. Doris presents a new account of agency and responsibility, which reconciles our understanding of ourselves as moral agents with psychological research on the unconscious mind. Much philosophical theorizing maintains that the exercise of morally responsible agency consists in judgment and behavior ordered by accurate reflection. On such theories, when human beings are able to direct their lives in the manner philosophers have dignified with the honorific 'agency', it's because they know what they're doing, and why they're doing it. This understanding is compromised by quantities of psychological research on unconscious processing, which suggests that accurate reflection is distressingly uncommon; very often behavior is ordered by surprisingly inaccurate self-awareness. Thus, if agency requires accurate reflection, people seldom exercise agency, and skepticism about agency threatens. To counter the skeptical threat, John M. Doris proposes an alternative theory that requires neither reflection nor accurate self-awareness: he identifies a dialogic form of agency where self-direction is facilitated by exchange of the rationalizations with which people explain and justify themselves to one another. The result is a stoutly interdisciplinary theory sensitive to both what human beings are like—creatures with opaque and unruly psychologies-and what they need: an account of agency sufficient to support a practice of moral responsibility.

Danger Above: A Tragic Death, An Epic Courtroom Battle tells the true story of a terrible event that occurred on a sunny June day in 2009. A power line fell on Carrie Goretzka, a young mother, setting her on fire as her young children watched in horror from the front porch of their suburban Pittsburgh home. What followed was an investigation and civil action against the Goretzkas' utility, West Penn Power Company, which the family's lawyer, Shanin Specter, claimed had been not only negligent, but also reckless. The trial was a very difficult challenge for the attorneys representing the family and those defending the utility. In their efforts to reduce the culpability of their clients, the defense at one point tried to claim that the victim was to blame for her own painful death by electrocution. Robert Zausner's chronicle of the case of Goretzka v. West Penn Power Company is an emotional one, begging the question: will justice be served against a dangerous, negligent corporation, or

In January 2009 the then Master of the Rolls, Sir Anthony Clarke, appointed Lord Justice Jackson to lead a fundamental review of the rules and principles governing the costs of civil litigation and to make recommendations in order to promote access to justice at proportionate cost. Sir Rupert's preliminary report, published in May 2009, is the product of fact-finding, research and investigations over a four-month period and serves to establish: how present costs rules operate and how they impact on the behaviour of both parties and lawyers; the effect case management procedures have on costs and whether changes in process could bring about more proportionate costs; a comparison for the costs regime for England and Wales with those operating in other jurisdictions. This report was published online in May 2009, beginning a period of consultation. The final report (ISBN 9780117064041) is released alongside this printed version of the preliminary report and contains extensive cross-references to it.
