This lean casebook is consciously designed to appeal to disenchanted users of the #1-selling Prosser casebook. Its content, organization, and cases-and-notes approach is explicitly modeled on Prosser, but the authors have capitalized on Prosser's weaknesses, focusing on providing key cases and concise, understandable notes. This book has the look and feel of Prosser, but will function much better for the many professors teaching a one-semester, four- or three-credit course. 

Features:

  • Authorship--co-reporters of the Restatement (Third) of torts, and both known to be excellent teachers
  • Conveys the core of Tort law through eminently teachable cases and informative topical notes
  • Pedagogical notes challenge students to consider provocative questions about the cases
  • Authors Dialogues feature informal, highly engaging discussions and debates between the authors that raise interesting and provocative points about the topic under consideration while modeling for students the skills of thinking aloud and persuasion
  • Presents three- to five-line hypotheticals that test variations on fact patterns
  • Fewer, more generously edited cases than Prosser

New Features:

  • New co-author Bradley Wendel is a nationally known expert in the field of Professional Responsibility. He adds professional responsibility and legal ethic insights to the materials. Integrating this dimension to tort litigation issues will provide for exciting class discussion.
  • A thorough integration of the newly completed Restatement (Third ) of Torts: Liability for Physical and Emotional Harm to all aspects of the material where the Restatement is of special relevance.
  • Addition of cases adopting the Restatment view that foreseeability is not to be considered in making a duty determination.
  • Many new hypotheticals taken from decided cases that raise novel issues of law.
  • Professor Wendel will now be a third voice in the Authors' Dialogues.
  • All chapters fully updated with new note material and new cases when necessary.
