Questions – feel free to email me –



Your assignments - including for the first class - will be on TWEN.  Once the Law School provides you with access to TWEN, please add my class - "Gilles F2021 TORTS Section B"   - and look under "Course Materials"  for your assignments.  They will be posted by August15, 2021.  If you have questions, feel free to email me. I look forward to studying Torts with you this semester.
