This version is newly streamlined for professors who teach a four-unit course or who want to cover fewer pages per day yet retain complete coverage. This edition tracks the standard edition but pares chapters down to their essentials. It cuts an additional 300 pages of cases and notes, and occasionally trims cases to a shorter format. This edition also omits chapters concerning economic and dignitary torts, and some material concerning alternatives to tort law. The result is a substantially shorter casebook that nevertheless provides the coverage most teachers want.

This study aid features an innovative method of content organization. It uses a checklist format to lead students through questions they need to ask to fully evaluate the legal problem they are trying to solve. It also synthesizes the material in a way that most students are unable to do on their own, and assembles the different issues, presenting a clear guide to procedural analysis that students can draw upon when writing their exams. Other study aids provide sample problems, but none offers the systematic approach to problem solving found in this book combined with concise analytical summaries of the leading issues in tort law.

The casebook, which is organized along traditional doctrinal lines, teaches students how tort law works to resolve disputes in the real world of litigation and settlement negotiations. A teacher can start with intentional torts or with negligence. The first chapter is an overview of trial court procedure in tort cases; the second is a concise treatment of intentional torts and defenses; and the third introduces negligence law with a streamlined treatment of the core breach-of-duty/substandard conduct concept. Subsequent chapters treat the remainder of the prima facie case in negligence, the principal defenses to negligence liability, and some of the basic concepts entailed in multiparty litigation. The book's concluding chapters are basic coverage of medical malpractice, common law strict liability, products liability, and nuisance.

This title is a part of our CasebookPlus(tm) offering as ISBN 9781634601658. Learn more at CasebookPlus.com. This popular casebook, through the selection of classic and modern cases, provides an excellent tool for teaching students the common law foundations of the criminal law and modern statutory reform, including the Model Penal Code. Along the way, the casebook considers modern controversies (e.g., "shaming" punishment, capital punishment, broadening sexual assault law, self-defense by battered women, euthanasia, the role of culture in determining culpability), and creatively uses literature (e.g., examining insanity through Edgar Allen Poe's The-Tell Tale Heart) and even "brain teasers" to confront (as the Preface states) "the Big Questions . . . that philosophers, theologians, scientists, and poets, as well as lawyers, have grappled with for centuries." The Seventh Edition, as in the past, includes new cases, as well as updates in the notes that bring current issues of criminal law to the fore. New Power Points have been added to the casebook companion website. For more information and additional teaching materials, visit the companion site.
