attractive nuisance doctrine

A notable exception in the law relating to trespassers that imposes a special duty of care on a person maintaining an artificial condition on land which attracts children (e.g., a swimming pool). Under the attractive nuisance doctrine, children enjoy the status and protection of invitees. In some cases, the landowner has been held absolutely liable for injuries to children in connection with an attractive nuisance even though the children were trespassers.
