Nora Freeman Engstrom

Reporter, Torts: Miscellaneous Provisions, Torts: Medical Malpractice

Nora Freeman Engstrom is a professor at Stanford Law School. She is a nationally recognized expert in both tort law and legal ethics.  Her work explores the day-to-day operation of the tort system and particularly the tort system’s interaction with alternative compensation mechanisms, such as no-fault automobile insurance, the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, and workers’ compensation.  Professor Engstrom has also written extensively on trial practice, complex litigation (including MDLs), attorney advertising, contingency fees, tort reform, and law firms she calls “settlement mills”—high-volume personal injury law practices that heavily advertise and mass-produce the resolution of claims.
