This Note explores the possibility of extending a duty to inform, similar to that now imposed upon physicians, to architects and engineers. The author discusses the nature of design services and the legal and policy bases for recognition of the proposed duty as a form of negligence. Finally, the Note examines the problems of proof associated with the prosecution of a claim for a failure to inform.
