This casebook takes a modern approach to the learning that takes place in the first year of law school. It utilizes a mix of classic torts cases and more recent cases, and the notes are limited in number and length to keep students engaged.
Each chapter begins with an outline of key concepts and also a hypothetical set of facts that students can use to orient themselves throughout the chapter. There are also short problems throughout each chapter, which build on the chapter-opening hypothetical, requiring students to apply the law. At the end of each chapter or section there is a short issue-spotting essay question related to chapter content.
The second edition includes updated cases and problems.
