Credit Hours




Perspective Elective

This course has several objectives. It offers the student an opportunity to study several important torts topics not usually covered in the first year, such as products liability, misrepresentation, and  business torts. It also offers an opportunity to consider whether tort law is a just and efficient way to resolve disputes and provide remedies for personal injuries and other types of harm. Perspective readings on tort reform evaluation will be included . Students also will conduct  research on a topic of the student’s choice and present findings to the class. The grade will be based on the quality of the presentation and a two-hour take home exam.
