Steven Schaus is an assistant professor of law at Michigan Law. He teaches and writes about tort law, remedies, and moral and legal philosophy.
Professor Schaus is interested in what we owe to each other, simply as a matter of interpersonal morality, and in when (and how) (and why) private law institutions like tort can step in and do something about our failures to live up to these standards. He’s also interested in questions about the nature of law and about the kinds of moral differences that legal institutions can make.
Before joining the faculty at Michigan, Professor Schaus was a fellow with the Project on the Foundations of Private Law at Harvard Law School. He is a member of the District of Columbia Bar.
