Rating : 4.5/5 from 828 voters

Tort doctrine is complex and nuanced on its own; a torts casebook that mystifies first year students will not help them develop the core skill of legal analysis. Tort Law in Focus presents concepts in a way that students can understand and apply. Rather than hide the ball, Geoffrey Rapp explains new terms clearly, and guides students in the specific techniques of applying tort law to practice-based problems. Along with concrete examples, Tort Law in Focus provides clear and thorough introductions to those areas of tort law (such as proximate cause under the dominant and new Restatement approaches; res ipsa; factual cause, including but-for cause and alternatives in special cases like indivisible injuries and alternative causes; the duty of owners and occupiers of land; and comparative negligence) that are especially challenging for first-year law students. Professors and Students Will Benefit From: Clear introductions and transitional text that frame key rules, concepts, and cases A wide selection of modern, high-interest cases that apply dominant legal rules, and which, where possible, interpret and apply the Restatement (Third) Summaries and discussion of canonical cases that convey the history and context of modern tort law Examples, flow charts and maps that illustrate concepts, rules, and the relationships among parties and interests Consistent use of problems that encourage students to implement “IRAC” (or equivalent) strategies for structuring their analysis Samples of documents commonly used in tort law practice, such as demand letters and complaints
