Torts law is the common law mechanism for civil liability for all wrongs except breach of contract. Some torts involve minor disputes between individuals, others can involve tens or hundreds of millions of dollars in damage. Because it is a common law subject, the Torts class also provides an opportunity for a deeper understanding of common law decision-making, civil procedure, and the role of juries in U.S. law. The dramatic and often surprising events in torts cases make the subject ideal for the case method of teaching. Much of the course will focus on the law of negligence and liability for defective products. However, the course will also include some torts of particular interest to business and employment lawyers, as well as privacy torts relevant to social media and Internet firms.At a more abstract level, Torts also provides the opportunity to think about the roles of fairness, economic analysis, and litigation problems in designing legal rules.
