LAW 1735 - Torts


The law of Torts concerns the principles governing redress of injuries resulting from intentional and unintentional wrongs against persons or their property. Particular attention is given to the relative functions of judge and jury in determining liability and damages and to the interplay between standards of liability and problems of proofs. The course also examines affirmative defenses based upon the conduct of the plaintiff, with particular regard to situations in which the plaintiff might have consented to the alleged wrong. Modern trends in the allocation of liability will be discussed with emphasis on insurability and possible alternative systems of compensation.
