This course will introduce you to the intentional torts. At the end of the course you will be able to describe the six intentional torts that most law students cover during the first few weeks of law school. In addition, you will also be able to identify the affirmative defenses that defendants can use to avoid liability.
Identify and Learn the Intentional Tort Elements in this Introductory Course
I designed this course so that anyone can take it. Because I've taught this material to law students for two decades, you will learn the intentional torts from an experienced and effective instructor. My goal in creating this course was to create engaging videos, so I purposely kept them relatively short and filled the videos with the same examples that I use in a traditional live classroom. Also, you will have access to some of the edited cases from my law school casebook "Torts: Majority Rule Cases." Finally, for those of you that want a challenge, you will find that my quizzes are in the same style that law students have on their exams in law school and on the bar exam.
You will also receive bonus material, including my eBook on the Intentional Torts and relevant links to videos on my YouTube channel that will help you learn the law better. Finally, I will answer your course related questions in a timely fashion. So please sign up and let me help you begin your journey.
My passion is inspiring people to learn the law better. I've been teaching law for two decades at online and traditional law schools. Because I've made mistakes, I now have a better idea of what works and what doesn't in online education. Since I am always learning, I will regularly update this course based on student comments--the key to success in life is continuous improvement. With lifetime access, you will benefit from every change I make to the course.
In addition to teaching thousands of law students, I am an active scholar. I've written several books, including Tort Law in the USA, published by Wolters Kluwer. My scholarly articles have appear in prestigious journals, and you can find me teaching on the LearnLawBetter YouTube channel.

As a homeschooling parent I am very involved with all five of my children, as we spend time on our small farm in the country. We have a small hen house, where we get plenty of fresh eggs everyday. In my spare time I enjoy hiking and backpacking with my son's scout troop.
I received my law degree (JD) from Georgetown Law School in Washington, DC, where I also earned an advanced degree (LLM) in taxation. During my time in Washington I was able to join the United States Supreme Court bar, attend over 100 oral arguments, and work on a few briefs that were submitted to the Court. But when I had the chance to become a full time professor, I jumped at the chance and have enjoyed teaching ever since.
