Description

Organized along traditional doctrinal lines, Robertson, Powers, Anderson and Wellborn’s Cases and Materials on Torts teaches students how tort law works to resolve disputes in the real world of litigation and settlement negotiations. The book’s first three chapters allow teachers to start with intentional torts or with negligence by providing: An overview of trial court procedure in tort cases A concise treatment of intentional torts and defenses An introduction to negligence law with a streamlined treatment of the core breach-of-duty/substandard conduct concept Subsequent chapters treat the remainder of the prima facie case in negligence, the principal defenses to negligence liability, and some of the basic concepts entailed in multiparty litigation. The book’s concluding chapters offer basic coverage of medical malpractice, common law strict liability, products liability, and nuisance.
