This module introduces you to an important area of civil law, concerned with the imposition by law upon persons of legal standards of conduct the breach of which permit an action for damages or some other personal remedy. The module examines both responsibility bases (intention, negligence and non-fault) and major forms of recognised damage.
This module is one of the seven foundations of legal knowledge required by the Law Society and it is therefore compulsory for all of you who wish to progress onto the Vocational Stage of Training to become a Solicitor or Barrister.
The module is available to interdisciplinary pathways and Flexible Combined Honours students. It is suitable as both a part of the Qualifying Law Degree and also non-specialist programmes.
