Prof. Daniel Hemel of The University of Chicago School of Law will teach an introductory lecture on torts. In this one hour lecture we aim to provide you with a bird's-eye view of the core concepts underlying this area of law. The point of the lecture is not to teach you the specific details of the rules and doctrines of torts. Rather, it is our hope that you'll obtain a sense of tort law's internal logic, its structure, as it were. Think of this as scaffolding. In your 1L tort course, you'll layer on the details.
Free—but you'll have to pay a $25 deposit to reserve your spot. If you are on time and stay until the end of the webinar, your deposit will be fully refunded. Otherwise, the deposit will be forfeit.
Saturday, November 16, 11:00am – 12:15pm ET
