Book Description

This three-hole punched, alternative loose-leaf version of the hardbound book is printed on 8 ½ x 11 inch paper with wider margins and the same pagination &ndash offered at a substantially lower price than the hardbound book.

Torts: Cases and Problems is designed to be a book that is fun to teach and fun to read. The clear focus of the book is on the cases presented. There are problems throughout the book that invite discussion and analysis, but notes are minimal.
