Units 4 - Graded
Recommended Courses:  

This course will provide an introduction to civil liability for personal injuries and other harms. We will cover intentional torts (such as battery, assault, and trespass), but most of our time will be spent on the law of accidents. We will focus on claims brought under a theory of negligence, and along the way we will consider its alternatives (including strict liability.) As part of the first year curriculum, this course will also introduce selected concepts and themes in the law, including deterrence, compensation, and accountability.
