Date:     August 14, 2017

Re:         Out First Meeting

For our first class meeting on Monday, August 21, please read pages 1 through 9 of the casebook. You should note that the assignments are keyed to the 9th edition, which is a new edition this fall. This material serves as a good introduction to the civil adjudicatory process and we will refer back to it now and then as we work through the cases during the semester.

I’ll introduce you to tort law generally and you will receive a syllabus detailing the assignments class by class. We’ll also discuss the ground rules for the class. And in connection with the ground rules, please read the two articles which are available on the distribution table outside the Faculty Support Center. These articles concern the use of laptops in class.

 I look forward to seeing you.
