Torts Required

Torts II is a continued exploration of the law that focuses on personal injury and property damage claims, a major part of modern civil litigation. Like Torts I, the course is concerned with injuries to people, property, and economic interests resulting from civil wrongs and how the legal system responds to the diverse problems raised by such injuries. Torts I covered a broad range of topics, including liability for intentional harm to persons and property and for similar harm caused by negligent conduct. Building upon the foundations laid in that course, Torts II focuses on interferences with family relationships, products liability, misuse of the legal system, civil rights torts, and the subjects of governmental and employee immunity. The course also covers defenses, damages, and practical approaches to resolving and litigating cases involving these dynamic areas of the law.
