Buy a new version of this Connected Casebook and receive ACCESS to the online e-book, practice questions from your favorite study aids, and an outline tool on CasebookConnect, the all in one learning solution for law school students. CasebookConnect offers you what you need most to be successful in your law school classes – portability, meaningful feedback, and greater efficiency. This looseleaf version of the Connected Casebook does not come with a binder.

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 40–50 three- to five-line hypotheticals that test variations on fact patterns
  • Fewer, more generously edited cases than Prosser
  • Accompanied by a comprehensive Teacher’s Manual that includes answers to the questions raised in the text, informs teachers about the important secondary literature, and provides commentary on the Authors’ Dialogues as well as suggestions for using the dialogues in class or as reading assignments
