Course Description:

This seminar will explore contemporary issues in tort law, including the proper scope of liability for accidental harm, problems of causation, and the scope of damages awarded in tort cases. The focus of the seminar is on the rigorous evaluation of scholarly argument. The readings will consist of both classic works in the field and important current studies. After a several-week overview of the field, each session will be devoted to an intensive study of a single law review article, in which designated students criticize or defend that article. All students will be expected to participate actively in the discussions at each session; a willingness to think critically and to make independent contributions to class discussion is required.

COURSE REQUIREMENT: An analytical criticism of a designated law review article
