Torts: Cases and Materials
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 teachersConveys the core of Tort law through eminently teachable cases and informative topical notesPedagogical notes challenge students to consider provocative questions about the casesAuthors 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 persuasionPresents three- to five-line hypotheticals that test variations on fact patternsFewer, more generously edited cases than Prosser New in the Third Edition:New co-author Bradley Wendel is a nationally known expert in the field of Professional Responsibility.
