Teaching Economic Torts

26 Pages Posted: 13 Jul 2007


The primary goal of this article is to proselytize for the teaching of an economic torts course in the upper-level law school curriculum, particularly a course that focuses on the business torts that form the core of a typical non-personal injury civil litigation practice. In service of that goal, the article surveys traditional and contemporary efforts to define the scope of economic torts and to provide teaching materials, identifies some themes and issues in those efforts, and comments on teaching methods that are particularly appropriate for the course.
