5305 Business Torts - MOLL- 38531
Douglas Moll (FACULTY)
Course Areas: Business and Commercial Law
Time: 2:30p-4:00p MWLocation: 3 BLB
Course Outline: In most first-year courses on torts, the class focuses upon torts that primarily cause personal injury and/or property damage. Tort law, however, extends well beyond these contexts. Indeed, this course will cover torts that typically cause pure economic harm -- i.e., harms to the pocketbook, rather than harms to the person or property. The course will emphasize the operation of various business torts and will examine the torts' applicability to particular business or economic settings.
