661 - Comparative Advanced Torts (2 hours)
The course will teach and compare French, American, and EU tort doctrine in a variety of areas such as pure economic loss, liability for traffic accidents (including autonomous vehicles), product liability (including artificial intelligence), liability for violation of privacy, liability in tort of contracting parties, and damages/punitive damages. Our learning objectives include not only to help students gain an understanding of US, French, and EU tort doctrine, but also to develop the skills necessary to apply and critique the doctrine to the facts of new cases. Special attention will be brought to critiquing American tort law from a European perspective.
