Torts – Presentation & Outline

For this unit, watch torts in action and give an oral presentation on your findings. Go to any place of business (perhaps if you have a part-time job or an internship), or use our Lynn University campus for this assignment. Then, find FOUR potential tort issues that you see.Next, complete a formal outline of your oral presentation, including, for each potential tort, an explanation of (1) facts and the potential injury which may occur and the specific tort which may be involved, (2) legal elements of that tort, (3) application of those elements to the facts; (4) your potential questioning of the validity of legal defenses to that tort actions.For example, you may notice water puddling in the bathroom. Explain how a person could slip, fall and be injured. Note that injury could trigger negligence. Specify the four elements of negligence and specifically apply the elements of the tort to the facts. Complete the analysis by examining potential defenses to the tort of negligence and why that, in your opinion, would not apply. Submit that formal outline to the professor.In class, you will present your findings in an oral presentation of 8-10 minutes, using 8-10 PowerPoint or Prezi slides. Start by completing a speaking outline for your presentation based on your findings and your formal outline. You shall be graded according to the Dialogues of Learning Oral Communication Grading Rubric, attached. This project is 15% of your grade.
