Torts 2 (2022LAW)

This course considers core aspects of the private law governing compensation for injuries and economic loss. The course focuses on common law remedies arising out of the law of negligence and non-intentional tort, as affected and modified by recent statutory tort reforms. Students are also introduced to other sources of injury compensation. These include the related torts of Breach of Statutory Duty, and statutory schemes such as Products Liability and Workers' Compensation. The course is taught and assessed in a critical vein, with students asked to consider the goals and efficacy of the common law and statutory compensation schemes, and the central role of policy in shaping legal responses to social problems. Prerequisites: 1031LAW Foundations of Law OR 1011LAW Law and the Modern State; 2021LAW Torts 1 OR 2013LAW Introduction to Torts; Students must be enrolled in a Law program. Incompatible: 3003LAW Negligence and Accident Compensation.
