Good episode? Give it some love!
Welcome back to the Bar Exam Toolbox podcast! Today, we're talking about defamation -- a topic you might see on a Torts essay along with other intentional torts, and sometimes on the MBE as well. We also highlight some of the other intentional torts that are commonly triggered in a defamation fact pattern.
In this episode, we discuss:
  • The five elements of defamation
  • When is a statement of opinion actionable?
  • The difference between defamation claims brought by private figures and public figures
  • The "slander per se" rule for damages
  • Analyzing three fact patterns involving defamation claims
  • What are the common defenses to defamation?
