PLEG220 - Torts and Remedies

Semester Credit Hour(s) 3
Tort law is the area of civil law that governs private injuries and harms. The study of tort law examines negligence (unintentional torts), intentional torts (such as battery), and strict liability. In this course, students will engage in an in-depth examination of the required elements of these torts and the applicable defenses to each tort. Students will study the remedies available to redress these civil wrongs, the liability of principals and agents, corporate tort liability, governmental liability and immunity and other tort related subjects. Building on PLEG 120 , students will recall and utilize civil procedural rules how they apply in a civil litigation case. Students will develop a civil litigation trial notebook for a tort case. Students will gain understanding of the relevance of tort law to everyday life.
