Slander Per Se

Crushendo defines this key bar prep and torts term.

What does slander per se mean?

slander per se – When someone makes one or more false public statements about another, alleging something like serious criminal conduct, sexual impropriety, a loathsome disease, or professional or business incapacity. Due to the serious nature of such allegations, the defendant’s statements are deemed inherently harmful to the plaintiff’s reputation and the plaintiff does not need to prove actual harm.
