Advanced Torts
Last Updated Date:   22 September 2021

5 Credits,  Semester 2

Course Description:
This course is designed to build on and further your knowledge of tort law and theory. The course is divided into two main parts.
In Part One, we will examine some fundamental concepts and debates surrounding tort law. The objective is to understand what is distinctive about tort law and how it might be theorised. These seminars should form a bridge between the first year course and the substantive torts to be examined in this course.
In Part Two, we will examine torts /topics not already covered in the first year course. This will include consideration of important torts based on intentional wrongdoing (deceit and conspiracy) and those which are of 'stricter liability' (defamation, trespass to goods and conversion). These torts will be examined by reference to the best of the literature and a selection of representative cases.
