Overview

Mark Geistfeld, the author of the leading textbook on products liability, an important text on tort law and dozens of scholarly articles, has class-tested the material in Products Liability Law for more than five years at NYU. He has made the study of products liability an advanced torts class that cements knowledge of fundamental tort principles while developing both specialized expertise and a deeper understanding of the torts process. Illuminating textual discussion follows a wide range of riveting cases. Unlike many casebooks that simply pose the question, Products Liability Law provides the analyses needed to address each challenging problem. Unifying the two competing conceptions of products liability, students become familiar with both approaches and develop a balanced perspective. A helpful Teacher’s Manual introduces a syllabus as well as complete set of class notes for a three-credit course.
