RESPONSIBILITY AND LUCK: THE MORAL BASIS OF STRICT LIABILITY (ARTICLE)
This work profoundly challenged the way in which I (and many others) had thought about fault and strict liability in tort law. I was struck by the elegant way in which very complex philosophical problems were handled and by the originality of the argument.

THE LAW OF TORTS
Fleming was the greatest torts scholar of the 20th century. Sadly, the Oxford Law Faculty has largely failed to realise that Fleming was educated at Oxford (Brasenose College) and to celebrate his work. Fleming’s The Law of Torts showed complete mastery of the subject across the common law world. It profoundly influenced the way in which torts scholars thought about tort law and the manner in which judges in many jurisdictions decided cases.
