Dr. Dagmar Halamka, retired USC Professor of Business Law, will lead five lively discussions of a range
of legal issues, including Estate Planning and Federal Taxation with a focus on Trusts, Wills, Durable
Powers of Attorney and Advanced Health Care Directives.
The course will explore the land of Tort liability (the reasonable person standard) to distinguish
between civil and criminal laws. Topics will include intentional (e.g. assault, battery, invasion of
privacy), negligent and strict liability (e.g. dog bites) torts.
Professor Halamka will examine the elements of a legally binding contract (OACLCS), including how
contracts must be written, the three day rule, the validity of "not responsible clauses" and fine print
paragraphs. She will conclude the discussion of contract law by exploring guidelines for avoiding
fraud. Readings may be assigned.
