Teaching Negligence and making it effective


Teaching Negligence and making it effective


Online | Tuesday 22 June 2021



How do you teach difficult areas of the law such as Negligence? How do you get learners to systematically go through the stages of the offence and not confuse “damage” with “damages?” (the cause of many a learner’s downfall!) How do you get students to incorporate meaningful cases into their answers and how do you get them to cite them correctly? What are examiner’s looking for when they read answers on Negligence? All of this and more will be covered in this course.
