LAW112B Torts

Course Description

Tort law covers that area of civil law that provides legal remedies for personal injuries and property damage caused by others. Tort law virtually always involves money. Beneath the demand for money is often a desire for respect, mutual recognition, or vindication. Tort cases often involve struggles between profits and safety. Too often, tort cases turn injury and loss into commodified products marketed in the legal system. Tort law says a lot about how society treats each other, how we expect to be treated, who recovers and who does not. It does not treat all of us the same.
