Torts Responsibilities & Redress

<p> This versatile casebook, written by authors who are at the forefront of torts scholarship, presents contemporary tort law in a clear and systematic framework. Now in its second edition, <b>Tort Law: Responsibilities and Redress</b> , has been refined based on classroom feedback to make it even more user-friendly and informative to students and professors alike. </p> <p> <b>Among the distinctive characteristics of this unique casebook:</b> </p> <ul> <li> <b>Tort law is presented as a coherent whole.</b> Students leave the course with a clear sense of what tort law is and what it does, and how it differs from other bodies of law, such as contracts or criminal law. </li> <li> <b>Painstaking case selection</b> ensures that students will be exposed to memorable opinions that effectively convey the substance of tort doctrine while also enabling the professor to explore <b>from any given intellectual or political perspective</b> underlying issues of policy, process, and theory. </li> <li> <b>Current and classic cases</b> expose students to a diverse array of case law, including decisions from jurisdictions around the country and from trial courts as well as state and federal appellate courts. </li> <li> <b>Modular design</b> of chapters permits the professor to proceed from any of several different starting points, including intentional torts, negligence, or a big-picture overview of the field. </li> <li> <b>Ample explanatory text is provided</b>, particularly in chapters that are likely to be covered early in the course. </li> <li> <b>Additional materials</b>—three appendices and two “modules”— are provided to permit professors who teach 5- or 6-hour courses to cover issues of history, policy, and theory. </li> <li> Substantial expository text offers <b>unparalleled guidance in clarifying key torts concepts</b> such as duty, breach, proximate cause, and intent. </li> <li> <b>The Teacher’s Manual sets the standard</b> for giving professors everything they need to succeed in the classroom. </li> </ul> <p> <b>The meticulous revision of this casebook includes:</b> </p> <ul> <li> <b>Revised Chapter 2</b>, <i>The Duty Element</i>, makes the material <b>more accessible</b> to students and enables teachers to <b>proceed more quickly</b> through the duty component of negligence, should they wish to spend more time on other negligence topics or other torts. New cases are more <b> straightforward and more modern</b> than those they have replaced.. </li> <li> <b>Revised Chapter 5</b>, <i>Proximate Cause and Palsgraf</i>, presents with <b> even greater clarity</b> than the first edition, the topics within negligence law that are most prone to generate student confusion. </li> <li> <b>Revised Chapter 9</b>, <i>Battery, Assault, and False Imprisonment</i>, <b> contains a new initial sequence of cases and notes</b> carefully designed to support courses that begin with intentional torts. </li> <li> New <b>website</b> that includes ”retired” cases from the First Edition, practice questions, and other materials of interest. </li> </ul> <p> <b>Tort Law: Responsibilities and Redress, Second Edition</b>, offers a contemporary approach to teaching torts without sacrificing attention to the conceptual underpinnings necessary to an in-depth understanding of tort law’s operation in the modern legal system. </p> <p> An author website to support classroom instruction using this title is available at <a target="_blank" href=""></a> </p> <p> </p> <p> </p> <p> </p> <p> </p> <p> </p>
