Torts: Questions and Answers gives a thorough review of Torts that fits with all versions of this course: any number of credits, presented in any substantive order. It provides an effective review of doctrinal material at relatively low cost in both time and money. The thorough Index and Table of Contents enable users to locate easily any topic in the Torts syllabus. Users also can “hide the ball” on themselves by choosing the practice exam chapter, which does not announce which topics are covered.
The principal technology of this book is the multiple choice question. Each one gives four alternative answers—and with no evasions like “all of the above” or “B and C only”—along with explanations that have been road-tested with Torts students for utility and clarity. Torts: Q&A also includes short answer and essay-style questions.
Some are relatively easy, a few relatively hard. Many are written as anecdotes with human characters, to simulate the case method of instruction; others ask about abstract points. Although core doctrine fills most of this book, Torts: Q&A also includes jurisprudential material like economic analysis and “policy” questions.
Torts: Q&A is a smart choice for students with a limited budget for supplementary materials. Their law school libraries furnish them with treatises to expound on what their casebooks cover. Lexis and Westlaw deliver law review articles, Restatements, and alerts that they can set up. Having this book at hand provides modules perfectly suited to short amounts of study time as they emerge.
