Examples & Explanations: The Law of Torts

This book is available in print on Reserve, or online through the Law Library's subscription to the Wolters Kluwer Study Aids Library. A favorite among successful students, and often recommended by professors, the unique Examples & Explanations series gives you extremely clear introductions to concepts followed by realistic examples that mirror those presented in the classroom throughout the semester. Each guide helps you learn new material by working through chapters that explain each topic in simple language; challenges your understanding with hypotheticals similar to those presented in class; and provides valuable opportunity to study for the final by reviewing the hypotheticals.
