Yesterday I taught the first Torts class of the year. I always love starting it all over from the beginning and the promise of a fresh bunch of students. On the first day, I cover: 1. what's a tort? 2. what are the types of torts? and 3. why do we have torts?. I would do this regardless of which casebook I was using. How do others use the first day? Also, this is the first time I am teaching a one-semester, four-credit course instead of a two-semester, five-credit course. Thoughts on the differences?
