AMERICAN TORT LAW


SPRING, 2011

STEVEN B. BORIS

VISITING PROFESSOR OF LAW

under the auspices of the International Center for Legal Studies

Salzburg, Austria

**********

The goals of American Tort Law are many:

1. To learn fundamentals of the American legal system.

2. To read, analyze and debate actual American Tort cases and controversies.

3. To explore law as practiced in the United States and to “think like an American lawyer.”


The course will employ not only lecture and group work, but also the reading and “briefing” of actual appellate court cases; the so called American law school “case method.”


We will meet for ten one and one half hour sessions. I may give you cases or other material to read in preparation for the next class. Please read the material before you come to class.


Reserving my right to alter and amend our schedule, we shall proceed as follows:


Day 1. Introductions. Structure of the American legal system. Common law vs. Civil Law. The American study of American Law: the case method. How to brief a case. The law of Torts.

Day 2. The intentional Torts. Assault. Battery. False imprisonment. Intentional infliction of emotional distress. Defamation.

Day 3. Intentional torts continued. The unintentional Tort. Negligence.

Day 4. Negligence continued. Causation.

Day 5. Negligence continued. Damages.

Day 6. Defenses and related concepts. Immunity. Joint & several liability. Contribution. Indemnity. Release.

Day 7. Insurance. Tort Reform. Public policy concerns.

Day 8. Strict liability.

Day 9. Products liability.

Day 10. Course review. Faux exam.
