Welcome back to the Law School Toolbox podcast! This is another episode in our "Listen and Learn" series, where we review legal concepts and apply them to fact patterns. Today, we're talking about negligence per se.

In this episode we discuss:

  • The four elements of negligence
  • How will you know when negligence per se appears on a Torts exam?
  • What if the facts don't specify the language of the statute?
  • Analyzing two essay questions, from the July 2010 and July 2004 California bar exams
  • How to structure a successful negligence per se analysis
