Community Room

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.

 Sponsored by Palos Verdes Library District and the USC Emeriti Center College, these classes are free and open to the public. 

Registration is required.  Please contact Mary Cohen at mcohen@pvld.org or 310-921-7519 to register.
