Overview

Use this short secondary text with any torts casebook to give your students a demonstration of the practical dimensions to tort law alongside the doctrine they are already learning. The Torts Game is ingeniously designed to engage student interest as it reviews key topics.

This new coursebook vividly illustrates the realities of tort law:

uses a real world case involving Charles "Mean Joe" Greene to work through torts doctrines, exploring the dilemmas that confront attorneys
• provides four modules that address intentional tort, the interplay between intentional tort and negligence, employer liability and insurance dimensions of the case as it explores how these doctrines play out in practice
• each module familiarizes students with primary materials, using court documents, letters exchanged among parties, and internal memoranda regarding case strategy
• each module is designed to fit with existing torts assignments, greatly enhancing a course without requiring a networking of its contents
• helps students understand both the strategic and the ethical choices attorneys face in preparing case
