An examination of the tort liability of professional people necessarily involves two areas: (a) an examination of fact situations peculiar to the activities of the various professions, and (b) an analysis of the theoretical basis for professional liability as distinguished, if at all, from any other form of tort liability. In the articles to follow in this symposium, there is a concentration on a particular professional group in addressing each of these questions. In this introductory comment, therefore, an effort will be made to examine some of the general principles of professional liability which may be applicable in many areas.
