Instructor: Prof. Field

First class date: Thursday, August 20

Posting date: Aug 9, 2015 @ 13:39:57


Welcome to South Texas College of Law and Torts I! The book we will be
using is: Russell L. Weaver, et al., Torts: Cases, Problems, and
Exercises (4th ed., LexisNexis 2013). You must purchase this book and
bring it to every class. This casebook is the one and only required
book for the course. The page numbers in the assignment below refer to
this book.

Additionally, there are optional supplementary texts available, but I
recommend that you hold off until after our first class before you
purchase any of these texts. I will explain the purpose of these
recommended texts during our first class. After that, you will be able
to make a more informed decision as to which of these texts (if any)
you purchase.

IMPORTANT--PLEASE NOTE: We will NOT be having class on the first
scheduled day of classes (Tuesday, 8/18). I have to cancel this class
session because I have plans to travel that day, which I had to make a
long time ago. We will discuss a make-up session during our first
class meeting, which will be Thursday, 8/20.

We will meet in room 413.

The following is the assignment for the first week. Be
prepared to be called on to discuss this material in detail, including
cases, problems, and textual material. To be prepared, you must
carefully study and brief all the cases in these assignments.

   Tuesday, 8/18:  NO CLASS (see above)

   Thursday, 8/20: pp. 1-11 in Weaver, et al.
