Tort Law Day
5 October 2019
Everybody knows about wrongful injuries; therefore everybody should know about the law of torts, which protects and defends us, and makes for a safer society.
The program will feature nationally-known speakers, and serve as a model for future Tort Law Day programs around the country to foster greatly needed public education.
