A one-day workshop to explore innovative approaches to teaching the subject of Torts

Hosted by Dr Samantha Schnobel at Birmingham Law School

An exciting, rich, and diverse corpus of theoretical and doctrinal work currently exists within the discipline of Tort law, however, there has been comparatively little work done on how we ‘teach’ Tort: the pedagogical methods we utilise to make our teaching more inclusive; the ways we include critical perspectives into our lectures, and attempts to decolonise curriculums. These efforts reflect a profound recognition that the law should speak in inclusive terms, but that too often complex issues such as race, gender, and class are either skirted over or go wholly undiscussed.

The aim of this one day workshop is to come together and discuss our attempts or plans to bring these critical insights to the fore in the best and most effective way possible within our lecture halls and seminar rooms.
