I our class, we covered Intentional Torts and Immunities, Negligence (duty, breach, cause in fact, proximate cause, damages/injury) and Defenses, and Strict Liability and Products Liability.
Im assuming you break it down by party by grouping the A v. B issues together, B v. A, A v. C, C v. A, B v. C, C v. B, etc...
Assuming that is how you big-picture organize it, do you then just go issue by issue stating which Intentional Tort/Negligence/Strict Liability it is and then accompanying that discussion with the relevant Privilege/Defense? I.e. "The first A v. B issue is assault and battery. B could argue self-defense."
Yeah that's pretty much what I did.
A v B
Paragraph on intentional tort
Paragraph on negligence
Alternative negligence theory X
Alternative negligence theory Y
A v C
And have counter arguments within those paragraphs as well.
