Business Torts

"The course surveys a variety of causes of action for nonphysical harm that ordinarily are not covered in the basic contracts and torts courses but form the core of many lawyers' business and commercial litigation practice; develops ways of understanding the causes of action, the connections among them, and their relation to the general law of tort and contract; and considers how the issues are presented to lawyers in practice. Topics covered may include unfair competition (deceptive marketing, trade mark infringement, misappropriation of trade secrets), consumer fraud, patent infringement, interference with contract and economic advantage, employment torts, and liability for consequential economic harm.
