Welcome back to the Law School Toolbox podcast! In today's episode, we talk about the special duties landowners and land possessors owe to people who enter their land, as well as the duties landlords owe to their tenants. Both are subtopics of Negligence under Tort Law. 

In this episode we discuss:

  • A general review of negligence and duty
  • The duty landlords owe to tenants with respect to maintenance and latent defects
  • The duty landlords owe to tenants to keep them safe from the criminal acts of third persons
  • The duty landowners or possessors owe to people who enter their property -- trespassers, social guests, and invitees
  • Analyzing a hypo from the February 2019 California bar exam
  • The rule for attractive nuisance
