They cannot take the place of appropriate advanced courses that cover defamation, misrepresentation, intellectual property, interference with contract, employment law, and the like. The materials in this book provide an introduction to those topics that suffices to help students recognize that tort law is not exclusively injury law and perhaps to help them decide on advanced elective courses.
