Teaching Advanced Torts

What do you teach in your advanced torts class (not the second semester of first-year Torts, but a torts class for 2L's and 3L's)?  I teach an upper-level class of Products Liability (and also Insurance), but I don't teach "Advanced Torts."  My sense is that people tend to teach defamation and the economic torts.  A TortsProf has asked that I solicit syllabi to help in planning such a course.  Because our comments feature does not allow attachments, if you are willing to send a syllabus to help, please e-mail me at and I will pass it on.  Thank you.

I stopped calling it advanced torts last year and now call it business torts, since that is what I cover. It is a problem based course, which allows me to cover these torts in depth.

I teach "Advanced Torts: Defamation, Privacy and Business Torts." I suspect that our numbers are small, but we should find a way to communicate.
