29th Annual Clifford Symposium on Tort Law & Social Policy – New Torts?

At the end of the 28th Annual Clifford Symposium, our distinguished faculty were asked what the topic for the 29th Symposium ought to be. With surprising alacrity and unanimity, they urged the exploration of the development of "new torts." The scholars invited to speak at this year's Symposium have identified the broadest range of topics as relevant to our conversations. They have focused on individual harms, public nuisance, health care and medicine, the impact of technological innovation and matters intimately connected to gender.

June 8-9
DePaul Center, 8th Floor & Online

The Symposium will be presented in person and online. There is a room cap of 100 in-person attendees, and online participants will receive a link to view the presentation by InReach just ahead of the event.
