This is the updated second edition of a book that provides a comprehensive tool for presentation of basic and advanced torts courses. Featuring dramatic cases across the history of torts, the book includes provocative problems and pithy topic outlines. It employs Jones v. Clinton, a symbolic modern torts case, in three different doctrinal settings. The products liability material reflects the author’s long-time work in the field, including his acclaimed treatise on the subject. The section on duty and proximate cause, chock-full of interesting cases, presents a flexible framework for a variety of approaches to the topic, and stimulating materials on medical malpractice appear in several sections of the book. Another highlight of the book is its materials on current problems in toxic torts, including issues of scientific proof. Tort and Injury Law presents many opportunities for selection to suit the preferences of a wide range of torts teachers. Aiming to provide an introduction to lawyering, Shapo weaves threads of law and economics, moral philosophy, and feminist jurisprudence around that spine.
