Advanced Torts Seminar / Course (3/2)

Advanced Torts goes beyond the basic principles of intentional, negligent, and strict liability torts covered in the introductory course, and introduces students to contemporary tort issues in a variety of specific contexts. Additional areas of tort liability generally not covered in the introductory torts course, including misrepresentation, defamation, and invasion of privacy, will be explored. Advanced Torts will consider alternative compensation systems, their advantages and disadvantages, and their relationships with the torts system, and the relationship between insurance and the tort system, including bad faith claims and liability insurance coverage issues. Individual instructors also may decide to cover other topics such as business torts (interference with economic relationships, etc.), malicious prosecution and abuse of process, and damage actions for violations of constitutional rights.

This course is open only to those students who have completed Torts or Torts I and Torts II.
