Dr. Dagmar Halamka, retired USC Professor of Business Law, will lead five lively discussions of a range of legal issues, including Estate Planning and Federal Taxation with a focus on Trusts, Wills, Durable Powers of Attorney and Advanced Health Care Directives. Those who have taken Joy of Law 101 will enjoy new material and updated laws. Newcomers are welcome!

The course will explore the land of Tort liability (the reasonable person standard) to distinguish between civil and criminal laws. Topics will include intentional (e.g. assault, battery, invasion of privacy), negligent and strict liability (e.g. dog bites) torts.

Professor Halamka will examine the elements of a legally binding contract (OACLCS), including how contracts must be written, the three day rule, the validity of “not responsible clauses” and fine print paragraphs. She will conclude the discussion of contract law by exploring guidelines for avoiding fraud. Readings may be assigned.
