About the Book

Products Liability: Problems and Process offers a problem-based approach that balances doctrine with in-depth exercises that prompt students to apply the law in realistic fact scenarios. Rules and comments from the Restatement (Third) of Torts: Products Liability—for which two of the authors, James Henderson and Aaron Twerski, have served as co-reporters—are fully integrated throughout the text. Brief dialogs among the three authors present a range of perspectives on controversial issues within the field to help stimulate reflection and discussion. The book concludes with a chapter on products liability in a global context.

New to the 8th Edition:
• substantial reorganization of material resulting in a slimmer, more user-friendly volume
• fully updated notes and cases in every chapter, including the latest scholarly commentary
• several new problem exercises and author dialogues throughout the book
• complete revision of preemption coverage and analysis
• addition of a new co-author, Doug Kysar
