Advanced Torts (3 OR 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. The Fall 2016 offering of this course will also include expanded coverage of products liability topics that also are studied in the Products Liability course.

Fall 2016: The grade will be based on an end-of-the-semester exam.
