Summary

Unique in perspective, this book explores tort law within the context of the litigation process. Going beyond many competing books, it defines each tort and breaks it down into its essential elements so students begin to understand how to analyze a problem of law. Significant treatment is given to negligence and a full chapter is devoted to business related torts. Filled with illustrative cases and hypothetical scenarios, it focuses more on application instead of memorization-giving students a firm understanding of torts within the context of legal practice.Paralegals
