Randy Lee ★★★★★

A very good overview of the state of the law in this area. Well written. Interesting with pertinent cases highlighted to help explain the theories.

Description

Product Liability, A U.S. View, is written by Nancy Caine Harbour, J.D., an experienced U.S. trial attorney and professor of paralegal studies. The book is an overview of the history and development of product liability law in the United States with the paralegal student in mind. It includes real life litigation situations, based on the author’s own experiences in the courtroom for almost three decades. The text is written in plain English and discusses key court decisions that drove the growth of product liability law from the 1900’s to today’s cases about toxic torts and ignition switches. The discussion and study questions in each chapter make this book an excellent study tool for paralegal students and those engaged in pre-law and criminal justice studies.
