Torts Flow Overall Exam Guides or Exam Checklists?

Postby Benjamin1987 » Thu Nov 01, 2012 7:58 pm

Does anyone know where I can get a good overall exam guide or exam checklist for Torts? I have one for Contracts made by the person who booked the class last year. It really gives you a good functional tool for progressing through the exam and making sure you cover all the necessary areas.

Have you tried making your own?

Does anyone have a link to one? So I can model mine after it.
I want to do one for all 4 of my classes.

ALSO, any examples of how to pre-write formulaic answers to key issues in exams?

Intentional torts: Assault>Battery>IIED> Conversion>Nuisance>Trespass

Strict Liability or Negligence or Negligence per se (violate statute>crim penalty>cause harm intended>protected class):

Res ipsa?

Duty
*Is there a duty? -> RPP? -> (Property owner? Level of duty?) -> TJ Hooper rule -> Higher (common carrier) or lower standard (kid?)

Breach
*calc of risk?

Cause
*But-for (actual) causation + Proximate cause (Palsgraf!)

Damages?

I know I'm missing stuff, but that's the basic skeleton of what you'd need to have down.

I think I have one or two in word format. Targeted towards my prof but obviously easily updated. PM with email if you'd like it!

Make your own.

1. The process of making it will be EXTREMELY helpful, and will make it so you don't even really need to rely on the physical document, you'll just know things very well.

2. Every professor and class is different, making such a document prepared by somebody else at best suboptimal and at worst counterproductive.
