This paper introduces the three types of intentional trespass namely; assault, battery and false imprisonment. It mainly focuses on the issues of consent in Trespass of Person. It justifies that consent is an affirmatory defense. The burden to prove, absence of consent lies with the plaintiff which is somewhat a hassle.
