Reviews and tips for 70311

Torts was my third law subject at UTS and the most interesting so far. Torts, along with Crim Proc, is what you'd think law is about. You learn about the various duties of care owed by individuals, employers, public authorities, etc. to individuals, employees and the public. You will research very interesting cases, some of which date back to only a few years ago. You will have seminars dedicated to discussing the law of torts as well as answering problem questions. CP is 20% which will get doubled up and substitute the other mark you get for the research essay if you've done better in it. This mechanism is there to maximise your mark. Also a mechanism to allow you to completely ignore either CP or the essay and work hard on the other. There are about 100 cases which come up in the course but only a few will be of use in the exam. It would be a good idea to have a short summary for all cases for class discussion, and then about 20 out of all for the exam. These will be cases with significant ratios and legal concepts. The exam is open book with two problem questions. If the problem questions allows you to talk about many things you've learnedd you will be able to, provided you have good notes and have studied, achieve a distinction overall.

A great and interesting subject by far and having one of the textbook co-authors, Pam, was one of the best experiences. Would love to have done more torts, by far one of the most interesting substantive law subjects.
