The Psychology of Tort Law

The Psychology of Tort Law

"This book explores tort law through the lens of psychological science.

"This book explores tort law through the lens of psychological science. Drawing on a wealth of psychological research and their own experiences teaching and researching tort law, the authors examine the psychological assumptions that underlie doctrinal rules. They explore how tort law influences the behavior and decision making of potential plaintiffs and defendants, examining how doctors and patients, drivers, manufacturers and purchasers of products, property owners, and others make decisions against the backdrop of tort law. They show how the judges and jurors who decide tort claims are influenced by psychological phenomena in deciding cases. And they reveal how plaintiffs, defendants, and their attorneys resolve tort disputes in the shadow of tort law."--Page 4 of cover.

Tort Law in Focus

Tort Law in Focus

Tort Law in Focus presents concepts in a way that students can understand and apply.

Author: Geoffrey Rapp

Publisher: Aspen Publishers

ISBN: 9781543807820

Category: Law

Page: 746

Tort doctrine is complex and nuanced on its own; a torts casebook that mystifies first year students will not help them develop the core skill of legal analysis. Tort Law in Focus presents concepts in a way that students can understand and apply. Rather than hide the ball, Geoffrey Rapp explains new terms clearly, and guides students in the specific techniques of applying tort law to practice-based problems. Along with concrete examples, Tort Law in Focus provides clear and thorough introductions to those areas of tort law (such as proximate cause under the dominant and new Restatement approaches; res ipsa; factual cause, including but-for cause and alternatives in special cases like indivisible injuries and alternative causes; the duty of owners and occupiers of land; and comparative negligence) that are especially challenging for first-year law students. Professors and Students Will Benefit From: Clear introductions and transitional text that frame key rules, concepts, and cases A wide selection of modern, high-interest cases that apply dominant legal rules, and which, where possible, interpret and apply the Restatement (Third) Summaries and discussion of canonical cases that convey the history and context of modern tort law Examples, flow charts and maps that illustrate concepts, rules, and the relationships among parties and interests Consistent use of problems that encourage students to implement “IRAC” (or equivalent) strategies for structuring their analysis Samples of documents commonly used in tort law practice, such as demand letters and complaints

Torts and other Wrongs is a collection of eleven of the author's essays on the theory of the law of torts and its place in the law more generally.

Torts and other Wrongs is a collection of eleven of the author's essays on the theory of the law of torts and its place in the law more generally. Two new essays accompany nine previously published pieces, a number of which are already established classics of theoretical writing on private law. Together they range across the distinction between torts and other wrongs, the moral significance of outcomes, the nature and role of corrective and distributive justice, the justification of strict liability, the nature of the reasonable person standard, and the role of public policy in tort adjudication. Though focussed on the law of torts, the wide-ranging analysis in each chapter will speak to theorists of private law more generally.
