Database of Tort Reforms

People studying tort reform often want to look at different states that have enacted various measures and compare them, perhaps before and after the reform was adopted. But it's complicated -- 50 states, lots of reforms, lots of dates.

Prof. Ronen Avraham, Northwestern Univ. School of Law, makes available his Database of State Tort Law Reforms (DSTLR 2nd) (Nov. 2006) on SSRN. You can even download an Excel spreadsheet so you can do your own datacrunching.
