Exam Type: Please refer to the Fall 2020 Tentative Exam Schedule

Most simply, a tort is a civil wrong not arising from contract. But tort law also reflects much deeper questions about when we have obligations to one another and what we must do to meet them. Studying everything from assault and battery to defamation, privacy, and negligence, this course examines the real-world functioning and theoretical foundations of tort law.
