Chapters 9-17 allow teachers to select additional topics that fit best with their curriculum and interests.

Key Features:

  • Cases edited to moderate length, so professors can help students analyze judicial reasoning and treatment of policy implications.
  • Practice-oriented problems in each chapter.
  • A new section on the intentional tort of false imprisonment, covering the concepts of confinement, consent, intentionality, and the shopkeeper’s privilege.
  • A new case addressing whether strict liability for abnormally dangerous activities applies to fracking, which, juxtaposed with another featured case, illustrates the differing ways courts have approached the Restatement factors.
  • A new case discussing joint and several liability, offering a straightforward introduction that enhances or may be substituted for a more detailed treatment of this complicated area.
