Mastering Torts offers a clear, doctrinal overview of the law governing compensation for personal injuries and property damages. By exploring the basic rules of tort liability, and illuminating their application to specific fact situations, Mastering Torts describes the main features of the American tort system. More than three hundred and fifty cases are discussed. Each of these decisions is briefly presented in a way that probes the meaning and limits of particular rules, but also reveals a broader, policy-based perspective on the law.
Mastering Tort Law is a succinct, practical guide to the intricacies of tort law. Functional in approach, it describes and illustrates basic tort doctrine, and provides students insights into more advanced tort theories. In an attempt to facilitate student learning, the book includes a Roadmap at the beginning of each chapter, and a Checklist at the end. The authors previously published a well-regarded casebook in the area, and have taught torts for many years. This book is part of the Carolina Academic Press Mastering Series edited by Russell L. Weaver, University of Louisville School of Law.
A Complete Guide to the Law School Experience: By Students, for Students
Author: Robert H. Miller
Law School Confidential is written for students about to embark on this three-year odyssey by students who have successfully survived. It demystifies the life-altering thrill ride that defines an American legal education by providing a comprehensive, blow-by-blow, chronological account of what to expect. It arms students with a thorough overview of the contemporary law school experience. This isn't the advice of graying professors or battle-scarred practitioners decades removed from law school. Miller has assembled a panel of recent graduates to act as "mentors", all of whom are perfectly positioned to shed light on what law school is like today. From taking the LSAT, to securing financial aid, to navigating the notorious first semester, to taking exams, to applying for summer internships, to getting on the law review, to tackling the bar and beyond...this book explains it all.
This textbook is designed for use in upper-level law school courses. It reflects the belief that the most effective teaching materials for students beyond the first year of law school are centered on problems of the kind that lawyers face in practice. Other features of the book include: • Clear Narrative Text. The chapters in Advanced Tort Law: A Problem Approach focus on five intriguing subjects which normally receive little attention in basic torts courses: misrepresentation, defamation, invasion of privacy, tortious interference, and injurious falsehood. In each chapter, the law is laid out in a clear narrative format, which quotes liberally from pertinent court opinions, statutes, and other sources. Because upper-level law students are already well acquainted with the American litigation process, each topic focuses primarily on operative rules and policies, and their application to particular fact situations. The text minimizes the procedural complexities of cases that have already been decided. • Fifty-Six Discussion Problems. The main instructional feature of Advanced Tort Law: A Problem Approach is the fifty-six discussion problems. Roughly every eight to ten pages, there is a problem for students to prepare in advance of class. A good answer requires a confident grasp of the rules, concepts, and principles addressed in the text or in basic law school courses. The problems, which test whether students have learned the assigned material, are designed to form the basis for classroom discussions. If a class meets twice a week over the course of a typical law school semester, each reading assignment is likely to include about fifteen to twenty pages of reading material and two discussion problems. Other advanced torts books have few or no discussion problems, or contain discussion problems only in some chapters. Advanced Tort Law: A Problem Approach is the only textbook that uses discussion problems as the principal teaching device for every topic in the book. • Preparation for Practicing Law in the 21st Century. Many of the problems in Advanced Tort Law: A Problem Approach are based on actual cases or stories in the news. With rare exceptions, the names have been changed. The facts in the problems often diverge from those which gave rise to the underlying disputes in order to raise questions important to the course. The discussion problems challenge students to explore how the law applies to the kinds of facts they will encounter in twenty-first century law practice. There is an abundance of citations to cases decided since 2000. The hypothetical scenarios are designed to help users of the book develop the problem-solving skills that effective lawyers need today. • Cutting-Edge Legal Issues in the Digital Age. Although the torts discussed in this book are ancient in origin, they are often on the front lines of litigation in the Digital Age. There are abundant references to issues raised by recent communications technology developments, including blogging, texting, and social networking. The book addresses numerous practical questions that Americans confront in contemporary life, such as the liability issues that arise from anonymous postings on the Internet or from corporate press releases designed to mislead investors.
Eine vergleichende Untersuchung des deutschen und US-amerikanischen Rechts
Author: Nina Jenke
In Deutschland wie auch in den USA ist sowohl für Arzneimittel als auch für Medizinprodukte die durch sie bewirkte Erhaltung bzw. Verbesserung der Gesundheit und Lebensqualität kennzeichnend. Zugleich bergen jedoch beide Produktkategorien, insbesondere Arzneimittel, inhärente Gefahren, die sich trotz umfangreicher, optimierter sicherheitsrechtlicher Maßnahmen und strengster Kontrollen im Vorfeld wie auch nach der Zulassung des jeweiligen Produktes nicht ausschließen lassen. Die vorliegende Arbeit ist eine kritische Bestandsaufnahme der geltenden, teilweise jüngst neu gefassten haftungsrechtlichen Regelungen des deutschen und US-amerikanischen Arzneimittel- und Medizinprodukterechts. Erörtert wird ferner, inwieweit US-amerikanische Haftungskonzepte mögliche Anregungen für die Fortentwicklung des deutschen Rechts bieten können.

I WISH I KNEW THEN WHAT I KNOW NOW! Don't get to the end of your law school career muttering these words to yourself! Take the first step toward building a productive, successful, and perhaps even pleasant law school experience—read this book! Written by students, for students, Law School Confidential has been the "must-have" guide for anyone thinking about, applying to, or attending law school for more than a decade. And now, in this newly revised third edition, it's more valuable than ever. This isn't the advice of graying professors or battle-scarred practitioners long removed from law school. Robert H. Miller has assembled a blue-ribbon panel of recent graduates from across the country to offer realistic and informative firsthand advice about what law school is really like. This updated edition contains the very latest information and strategies for thriving and surviving in law school—from navigating the admissions process and securing financial aid, choosing classes, studying and exam strategies, and securing a seat on the law review to getting a judicial clerkship and a job, passing the bar exam, and much, much more. Newly added material also reveals a sea change that is just starting to occur in legal education, turning it away from the theory-based platform of the previous several decades to a pragmatic platform being demanded by the rigors of today's practices. Law School Confidential is a complete guide to the law school experience that no prospective or current law student can afford to be without.
Since its first appearance in 1986 this book has won uniform praise from many of the world's leading comparatists, has been acclaimed by senior judges, and has been cited by the courts of many countries. This new edition of the work, substantially rewritten and systematically updated, contains over 150 leading judgments, most translated in their entirety, along with references to over 2,000 other decisions from Germany and the common law world. While the book remains an ideal tool for teaching comparative torts and comparative methodology, the fact that it has been extensively rewritten and enlarged now also makes it an indispensable source of inspiration for those with a professional interest in tort litigation and tort reform. Topics discussed include economic loss, psychiatric injury, wrongful birth, life and sterilization cases, products liability, traffic accidents, accidents at work, environmental liability and compensation for personal injuries and death.
This book argues that it can be beneficial for the United States to talk with 'evil' - terrorists and other bad actors - if it engages a mediator who shares the United States' principles yet is pragmatic. It shows how the US can make better foreign policy decisions and demonstrate its integrity for promoting democracy and human rights, by employing a mediator who facilitates disputes between international actors by moving them along a continuum of principles, as political parties act for a country's citizens. This is the first book to integrate theories of rule of law development with conflict resolution methods, and it examines ongoing disputes in the Middle East, North Korea, South America and Africa. It draws on the author's experiences with The Carter Center and judicial and legal advocacy training to provide a sophisticated understanding of the current situation in these countries and of how a strategy of principled pragmatism will give better direction to US foreign policy abroad.

Author: Suzanne Darrow-Kleinhaus
Publisher: West Academic
Mastering the Law School Exam is designed to provide students with a knowledgeable, reasonable, and rational voice to navigate the intricacies of law school exams. This book is practical rather than theoretical where the emphasis is on providing the type of detailed examples necessary to show students precisely "how to do it" and "how to write it." By working with numerous illustrations in the context of substantive law, students learn to: Fill the gap between what the professor refers to as learning to "think like a lawyer" and the actual means for doing so. Create a successful path from note-taking -to outlining-to exam writing. Identify the basic skills that exams seek to test and the precise manner in which they are tested. Become familiar with the general types of law school exams through examples and detailed analyses of sample answers. Use the language of the law in the writing of issues, statements of the rule, and analysis of the facts
