My First Year

Module 1 of 6 - My First Year  — Torts

Please complete the assignments below. When you are finished, pass the quiz and click "Finish Module" (below) to continue on to the next module.

COURSE OBJECTIVE

In "My First Year" students will

  • survey the four courses they will study in their first year at Concord
  • gain an overview of four classic topics that are foundational to the study of law
  • practice taking quizzes on material presented
  • learn how to upload assignments to the Concord Learning Management System
  • write their first "essay" answer analyzing a fact pattern
  • gain an overview of Torts, Contracts, Criminal Law, and legal writing

Students are expected to work on all four courses simultaneously. They may not finish one course, for example, then go back and begin another. The site has a mechanism that will prevent students from streamlining only one course. This mechanism is called a "module block," and it will stop you from clicking through.

MODULE OBJECTIVE

In this module, students will

  • gain an overview of Torts
  • demonstrate the ability to understand and apply core concepts
  • begin to understand "Intentional Torts"
  • gain experience with Concord's quiz system
