Fields of Academic Interest & Dissertation Project
Ms. Eenmaa’s primary academic fields of interest are tort law, law & economics, philosophy of law, and international law. Her J.S.D. dissertation and recent publications study the theoretical foundations of tort law, being particularly focused on the disagreements between the economic and philosophical theories of tort law. In her dissertation, she analyses the problems of dependency and emptiness of the principle of corrective justice. She argues that the principle of corrective justice is despite criticism both an independent and substantive principle of justice, which is also reflected in our legal practice.
