LAW 140 - Torts

This course focuses on personal injury law, as it has developed within the Anglo-American legal tradition. In particular, the concept of negligence and the refinements of negligence law will be extensively considered.  Contemporary rules and strict liability, especially strict liability for defective products, will also be carefully studied, because of both their intrinsic importance and their theoretical implications.  Throughout the course, there will be a focus on the procedural aspects of tort litigation and the process of identifying and working with relevant facts.
