With the rise of “Big Data” the costs associated with creating and administering personalized legal rules tailored to specific individuals or circumstances have decreased significantly. Rules that currently apply uniformly—rules like standards of care in tort law; default and mandatory rules in contract law; disclosure mandates; sentencing rules; tax laws; and legal procedures—now face the possibility of becoming personalized in nature. This talk will examine the efficiency and fairness of personalized law, with particular focus on contract law and tort law.
