This lesson focuses on issues relating to injunctions against speech. It is designed for students who have studied these issues in class, and who have a strong working knowledge of the material, but who wish to further refine and develop their understanding.
This is the second lesson involving injunctions against speech. The first lesson focused on various aspects of injunctions against speech including injunctions against defamation, obscenity and related to national security. In this lesson, we focus on some issues that arise in relation to injunctions against civil rights demonstrations including abortion and civil rights protests. Much of the law that governs these issues is basic constitutional law.

This lesson is one of a series on the topic of "Compensatory Damages." This particular lesson explores the differences among each of the three main types of legally-protected "interests" most commonly involved in any damages case: the expectation interest, the reliance interest, and the restitution interest. It is designed as an "Introduction" to the basic distinctions among each of these different interests, as well as a practical guide to determining when one interest should be asserted instead of another.
For beginning students, this lesson should not be attempted until the "Basic Terminologies in Compensatory Damages" lesson has been completed. Students who have already completed foundational courses in "Contracts" may wish to use this lesson as a review of these same basic "Damages" terminologies, or to better understand more complex issues presented by other courses in which substantive Damages issues or remedies issues may be presented. For comparative purposes designed to illustrate the various distinctions among each of these three different types of legally-protected damages "interests," this lesson focuses primarily upon contract damage examples.
This lesson is intended for students who have studied irreparable injury in class, and want to expand and refine their knowledge.
One of the difficult common law issues in defamation was the distinction between libel and slander. This lesson explains the differences between the two types of defamatory statements. Material is provided on the damage requirements of both. This lesson is part of a series about defamation. One should review the lesson on Basic Issues in Defamation and Privileges before working with this exercise. After finishing this one, the exercise on Constitutional Issues in Defamation should be covered.
This lesson focuses on the problem of modifying injunctions. As we shall see, even though an injunction is labeled as "permanent," it is subject to modification or alteration. Indeed, some injunctions, even some far reaching ones, are not intended to last forever. In this lesson, we examine the standards and criteria by which courts decide whether to terminate or modify existing injunctions. This lesson is intended for students who have studied these issues in class, and wish to refine and enhance their knowledge.
This lesson covers the availability of non-economic damages; evidentiary issues in proving these damages; and issues in the argument to the jury of these damages. This lesson gives you an opportunity to explore the "how to" of non-economic damages, particularly damages for pain and suffering and mental or emotional distress. The lesson is designed for upper-level students in remedies, advanced torts, or trial practice courses. Students should have some basic knowledge of both tort law and evidence law. First-year students may find the lesson accessible by making use of the pop-up screens providing background on concepts and rules.
