Product Description

Abraham's Forms and Functions of Tort Law opens with a primer on procedure and functions of tort liability. It then covers material on intentional physical injury and then moves on to negligence, causation, defenses, product liability, limited duties, and damages. The material in this work coincides with what is taught in the typical one semester course in Torts. It also includes materials usually taken up in a second semester or Torts II course, including tort reform and alternative compensation systems, defamation, invasion of privacy, misrepresentation, and interference with contract and prospective contractual advantage.

Topics addressed include:
Nature and Functions of Tort Law;
Procedure in a Tort Suit;
Intentional Harms; Defenses;
The Negligence Standard;
Reasonable Person Standard;
Negligence "Calculus";
