Summary

This comprehensive 2nd edition provides a condensed version of Statsky's "Personal Injury Litigation, 4th Edition." It provides an overview of the law of torts with a focus on the paralegal role in tort litigation. In this 2nd edition, the basics of tort law are examined and additional case studies have been provided to offer insight into some of the current "hot topic" legal issues. There is a greater attention to the role of constitutional law, particularly in the areas of civil rights, defamation, invasion of privacy, and intentional infliction of emotional distress. These tools also serve as a helpful on-the-job refresher for anyone working in the law of torts. ALSO AVAILABLE - INSTRUCTOR SUPPLEMENT: Instructor's Guide (ISBN# 0-7668-1158-1).
