Summary

Torts : Personal Injury Litigation, 5th Edition, is a comprehensive guide to the law of torts. This fifth edition extends the discussion of paralegal roles within tort litigation and examines the ethics of attorney solicitation.

Torts: Personal Injury Litigation July 31, 2011
by
The textbook was very comprehensive; easy to read. Information is presented clearly. I have found this textbook to be very useful and will continue to use it as a good reference book in the future. The textbook arrived in a very timely fashion actually before i had expected it and it was in great condition no tears and no highlighting already in it for a used textbook.
