AB - In this paper we prove a new convexity property for L₁ that resembles uniform convexity. We then develop a general theory that leads from the convexity property through normal structure to a fixed point property, via a theorem of Kirk. Applying this theory to L₁, we get the following type of normal structure: any convex subset of L₁ of positive diameter that is compact for the topology of convergence locally in measure, must have a radius that is smaller than its diameter. Indeed, a stronger result holds. The Chebyshev centre of any norm bounded, convergence locally in measure compact subset of L₁ must be norm compact. Immediately from normal structure, we get a new proof of a fixed point theorem for L₁ due to Lami Dozo and Turpin.
