The American Museum of Tort Law, founded by renowned consumer advocate Ralph Nader, presents a unique mix of historic displays, with interactive experiences to illustrate the workings and effect of tort law.  The museum will be a national repository for tort cases that made a difference and will serve as an online resource where today’s tort law cases, developments and judicial decisions will be highlighted and discussed in ways that interest the general public, scholars and the media.

Listen to an audio recording of the entire 2 1/2 hour event.

Ralph Nader is founder and president of the The American Museum of Tort Law. His 1965 book, "Unsafe at Any Speed," led to congressional hearings and a series of automobile safety laws. Nader is responsible for many major federal consumer protection laws, the launching of federal regulatory agencies, the recall of millions of defective motor vehicles, the Freedom of Information Act and many lives saved. Nader has built a national network of citizen groups to give citizens more rights and remedies for resolving grievances and achieving a better society. He founded Public Citizen in 1971.
