Golden Gate University Law Review


Carl Tobias


The first section of the piece affords a general examination of many aspects of the Prosser casebook that involve issues of gender. This overview should enhance the understanding of readers, especially those persons not accustomed to thinking consciously in terms of gender, while providing a setting for the specific assessment in the second segment of the paper. That section explores how issues implicating gender can arise in the classroom context of learning and teaching from Prosser's materials on affirmative causes of action for intentional torts to persons and privileges to those torts. The final part reflects on the future of gender issues and Prosser, Wade, and Schwartz.
