Tort Law Education 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.
