More About This Textbook


A highly effective study tool, The Glannon Guide to Torts uses explanatory text and multiple-choice questions to thoroughly review course content. The interactive and student-friendly Glannon Guide pedagogy enables students to hone their understanding of torts topics so they can be prepared and confident—in class or taking the final exam.

A complete approach to content mastery and exam preparation features:

  • multiple-choice questions that comprise a comprehensive review of first-year Torts
  • clear introductions to terms and concepts that prepare students to successfully analyze and answer multiple-choice questions
  • analysis of correct and incorrect answers, to clarify murky or ambiguous points of law
  • sophisticated but fair multiple-choice questions that are neither unrealistically easy nor unnecessarily difficult
  • a user-friendly and interactive approach that supports learning and course review for Torts, regardless of the exam format
  • The Closer, a final question at the end of each chapter, challenges the reader to apply new concepts to a more complex problem
  • Closing Closer questions in the last chapter offer a cumulative review of the entire course

*A Teacher’s Manual may be available for this book. Teacher’s Manuals are a professional courtesy offered to professors only. For more information or to request a copy, please contact Aspen Publishers at 800-950-5259 or
