Practice Video: What Is A Tort?

I found some short videos, that are less than 60 seconds, that discuss the law. These are great practice videos to get legal terms to become automatic in your typing. Because they are quick blurbs, they can be repeated several times and help to reinforce some legal briefs and phrases.
