Description
Summary:This casebook is organized to facilitate the study of tort law in the first year of law school. The text begins with an overview of the subject, pointing out distinctions between tort law and other types of law. It then covers intentional torts, negligence actions, and strict liability. The materials build on these foundational principles by exploring more advanced tort subjects, such as nuisance law, products liability actions, and defamation law. This versatile textbook includes classic cases, as well as contemporary cases relevant to today's students. It contains discussion questions and hypotheticals throughout.
