LAW 768 Regulation of Hazard Substances



Course Description

The course considers tort law, as well as some important state and federal statute law, that regulates harms to persons and property from toxic substances. Much, though not all of this law, is strict liability law. Causation is a central legal issue of the course. In addition, the course devotes some attention to theory that shapes this lawmaking, as well as to the application of toxic substances law to problems.
