ABSTRACT
The article presents information on a normative dimension that was missing in legal scholar Brian Leiter's philosophical reconstruction of Legal Realism, a school of legal philosophy associated with attack on the orthodox claims of late-nineteenth-century classical legal thought in the U.S. It examines the seminal works of legal realist Leon Green and U.S. jurisprudential scholar Karl Llewellyn that have influenced modern tort law. It discusses the enterprise liability agenda of these scholars.
