Description

This eBook and Learning Library provides you with lifetime digital access to a downloadable eBook, 12-month online access to self-assessment quizzes tied to the casebook, three leading study aids, GilbertĀ® Law Dictionary and an outline starter. The included study aids are Torts in a Nutshell, Acing Tort Law and Exam Pro on Torts, Objective.

The book includes new cases carefully selected from hundreds of decisions published between 2013 and 2016. Recent statutes and authorities, such as the Restatement Third of Torts: Intentional Torts to Persons, have also been included. Added cases involve current factual contexts such as arguments over Facebook posts and the use of defibrillators in high school sports. The new cases also illustrate developing issues such as duty in cases of misfeasance vs. nonfeasance and the impact of comparative fault on other areas including the plaintiff illegal acts doctrine.
