Advanced Torts – 6230

Spring 2024

Advanced Torts builds on the legal doctrine and theories that are covered in the first-year torts course, including mass toxic torts, insurance, emerging theories of tort liability, workers injuries, class action lawsuits, and tort reform. Advanced Torts offers students the opportunity to explore important, emerging and controversial topics that generally are not covered in the first-year torts curriculum, such as tort liability within the contexts of opioids, gun violence, climate change, algorithmic bias, autonomous vehicles, products liability, brain trauma in organized sports, etc. Students will be required to write a final paper. This course will satisfy the upper division writing requirement.
