Tort law defines what counts, in the eyes of the law, as wrongfully injuring another person – assault, fraud, libel, malpractice, negligence, and nuisance are all torts. Tort law also gives victims of such wrongs the opportunity to obtain a court-ordered remedy from the wrongdoer. Harvard Law School provides instruction not only in the basics of tort law – the definitions of the different torts, available defenses, the nature of tort remedies, and the like – but also advanced instruction in the history, policy dimensions, and theory of tort law, and its relation to insurance and government regulation.
