Mass Torts



 



Welcome to LawShelf’s video-course on mass torts. This course focuses on the procedures of civil actions that are based on single narratives that cause damage to many people. These may include defective products, prescription drugs with undisclosed side effects, plane or mass transit accidents and the like. The course focuses mainly on the two major vehicles for bringing forward mass tort clauses: class action lawsuits and multidistrict litigation.

This is an intermediate level course and it is recommended that you come into the course with some exposure to tort law, civil litigation or both.
