9780314266941: Cases and Materials on the Law of Torts (American Casebook Series)

This fifth edition, continuing the use of minimally edited cases, serves as a vehicle for teaching first-year students the essential techniques of case analysis and legal method. The book is modified to include developments in tort law since the fourth edition was published in 2004. For example, the chapters on negligence and causation recognize and discuss the Restatement (Third) of Torts: Liability for Physical & Emotional Harm and the recent caselaw expanding liability for “loss of a chance.” A major overhaul to the duty section reflects the framework by which courts think about duty and elucidates the pervasive role of foreseeability in courts' duty decisions. The materials on product liability capture recent developments in that area; and the materials on dignitary harms reflect the increasing interaction between tort law and constitutional law, as well as the expanding potential reach of international human rights conventions.

Book Description West Academic, United States, 2012. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 5th Revised edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. The Fifth Edition of Cases and Materials on the Law of Torts continues the tradition of using, as much as possible, minimally edited cases so that the book can serve as a vehicle for teaching first-year students the essential techniques of case analysis and legal method. The entire book has been modified to accommodate the many developments in the law of torts since the Fourth Edition was published in 2004. For example, the basic chapters on negligence and causation recognize and discuss the now finally adopted Restatement (Third) of Torts: Liability for Physical Emotional Harm and the recent case law expanding liability for loss of a chance. The duty section has also undergone a major overhaul to reflect the conceptual framework by which courts think about duty and to elucidate the pervasive role of foreseeability in courts duty decisions. The Materials on Product s Liability capture the many recent developments in that area; and the materials on dignitary harms reflect the increasing interaction between tort law and constitutional law as well as the expanding potential reach of international human rights conventions. Finally the Fifth Edition retains its comprehensive coverage of the entire field of torts so as to give instructors, all of whom are having to accommodate a curriculum that has cut back on the number of credit hours assigned to torts, the widest possible choice of subjects on which they may wish to concentrate in the limited time they have available.
