This casebook is organized to facilitate the study of law in the first year of law school with a focus on the study of tort law in particular. The text begins with an overview of tort law, pointing out distinctions between tort law and other types of law. It then covers intentional torts, negligence actions, and strict liability, covering all topics in detail. The materials presented build on foundational principles by exploring more advanced tort subjects such as nuisance, products liability, and defamation and privacy law. This versatile textbook includes classic cases as well as contemporary cases relevant to today’s students. In addition to having discussion questions and hypotheticals throughout, the text also includes graphics illustrating many of the principles covered throughout the text. The text is available in both hardbound and electronic format and features Internet links for the student’s use. For faculty adopting the book, there is a comprehensive teacher's manual, complete with PowerPoint slides ready for classroom use. In addition to the thought-provoking discussion questions throughout the text, the teacher's manual contains additional discussion suggestions that will be useful for all levels of teaching, ranging from the newest professor to those who have taught torts for years. The third edition contains new and recent cases, as well as illustrative graphics and visual representations. New problems and hypotheticals test student comprehension.

This edition utilizes the CasebookPlus™ platform. Anchored by faculty-authored self-assessments, CasebookPlus allows students to test their understanding of core concepts as they are learning them in class with quizzes keyed to each chapter, subject area review quizzes, and helpful explanations.
