Welcome back to the Law School Toolbox podcast! Today, in another "Listen and Learn" episode, we're focusing on assumption of risk as a defense to negligence in Tort law.

In this episode we discuss:

  • A review of the rule for assumption of risk
  • What are some common situations that trigger this defense?
  • Express vs. implied assumption of risk
  • The Professional Rescuer Rule
  • How a small change in the facts can alter the outcome of the question
  • Why your analysis on a law school essay is ultimately more important than your conclusion
