Overview

This highly successful casebook integrates modern scholarship and historical background to provide students with a thorough understanding of tort law. Written by leading scholar Richard Epstein, Cases and Materials on Torts takes an explicitly economics-based point of view and examines the processes of legal methods and reasoning, and the impact of legal rules on social institutions.

The Tenth Edition welcomes new co-author Catherine Sharkey , an expert on punitive damages and federal preemption of state tort law. Hypothetical problems have been added to assist students in their understanding of core issues. New developments, such as privacy and defamation in the Internet Age, and the relevance of race and gender in calculating damages, are given thorough coverage.

Hallmark features:

• Written by a leading scholar in the field,

• Economics-based point of view makes a good foil for counterpoint and fuels class discussion.

Traditional approach integrates cases with modern scholarship on moral theory, law and economics, and salient policy questions.

Begins with Intentional Torts and other physical and mental harms, and progresses logically through to nonphysical interests.

Thoughtful presentation examines the processes of legal method, legal reasoning, and the impact of legal rules on social institutions.

• Exposes students to different intellectual approaches that have been employed to interpret tort law over the years.

Historical background provides contextual framework of tort law and its development up to the present.

• The Teacher’s Manual offers proven methods and suggestions.

Thoroughly updated, the revised Tenth Edition includes:

New co-author, Catherine Sharkey, an expert on punitive damages and federal preemption of state tort law.

Empirical approach to many issues harmonizes the topics with cutting edge scholarship.

Hypothetical problems, inspired by the facts of actual cases, to help students develop a deeper understanding of the core issues.

New issues are explored, such as privacy and defamation in the age of the Internet, and the relevance of race and gender to damages calculations.
