This course reviews the Law of Fraud. Fraud is intentional deception to secure unfair or unlawful gain, or to deprive a victim of a legal right. The student will study the requisite elements of fraud: the intentional misrepresentation or concealment of an important fact; which the victim is meant to rely, and in fact does rely, to the harm of the victim. The course also discusses the general difficulty of demonstrating fraud in a court of law as the element of “intention” and “intent” are: often difficult to evidence; and require the proof is “by clear and convincing evidence”. As with our other “The Law Of” courses the legal doctrines discussed in the course are supported by numerous case studies to keep the course both interesting and instructive.
