A Comment on Causation, Law Reform, and Guerilla Warfare, 73 Georgetown Law Journal 1393 (1985)
It seems appropriate in a conference concerned with the conjunction of law and science to mention what lawyers can teach scientists and vice versa. For example, this morning the lawyers may be teaching the scientists that the lawyers have invented the "perpetual motion machine," an elusive apparatus long sought by scientists. It turns out to be a social rather than a physical mechanism, and in legal circles it usually goes by the name "law reform."
