Summary

In Tort Law, we examine the black letter rules of tort law tested on the MBE and in law school. By combining a simple approach to legal learning, with the innovative appeal of an audio study aid, Tort Law provides you with a concise overview of the subject matter in a way that makes it easy to learn, understand, and memorize. Tort Law also includes numerous hypothetical examples and analyses to help you apply the rules of law to analyze any given fact patterns.

Key topics include:

  • Intentional torts (battery, assault, false imprisonment, intentional infliction of emotional distress, trespass, and defenses)
  • Negligence (duty, standard of care, claims against owners and occupiers of land, breach, res ipsa loquitur, causation, and damages)
  • Defenses (contributory and comparative negligence, assumption of risk)
  • Strict liability (abnormally dangerous activities, animals)
  • Products liability (manufacturing and design defects)
  • Defamation
  • Nuisance
  • Invasion of privacy torts (appropriation, intrusion, false light, and public disclosure of private facts)
  • Economic torts (misrepresentation, interference)
  • Vicarious liability
  • Bonus examples

AudioOutlines™ creates innovative legal study aids customized for audio that are designed to simplify the learning process and help you gain a solid understanding of the subject matter. Listen and learn anytime, anywhere, with AudioOutlines™.

I'm a fan of the series

I am not a lawyer nor student. I just like to study law casually. I love the coverage and delivery of content, and, for what it's worth, I believe this content is a great entry into Tort. I have other books in this series and so far they're great.

Great study tool - for Paralegals, too!

I needed to brush up before I took a certification exam for Paralegals, and this was great! The simplistic overview and examples helped me get a few more answers than I would have if I hadn't listened beforehand - it's been six years since I took the class as part of my certificate program. I work with probate, trusts, and estates - not litigation - so I haven't had to deal with these concepts since school.

I would highly recommend this for anyone looking to brush up with a quick overview.

annoying jingle at intro of 80+ tracks.

There is an annoying introductory jingle at each of the 80-plus tracks that are not labeled according to the subject covered but instead label chapter x. that sound was too much to endure after a dozen.

Only one issue

The only issue I had with this audio book was the piano at the end or beginning of each chapter. It got annoying after about 10 chapters, and we have 84 to get through! Other than that, this was excellent outline and is really helping me prepare for the MBE

Mostly Accurate with Childish Examples

Most of the information given, in my opinion, was accurate, however there were some examples given that were highly debatable. They were presented as fact when I believe they were merely opinion or at the very least not applicable to all jurisdictions. The reading was mundane at best and involved juvenile examples sprinkled throughout involving comic book characters. One example involves Superman hurling Lois Lane's home into outer space in order to save the neighborhood from fire. I found such examples as this ridiculous and distracting.

Great for 1L

Best as a supplement outline for class. The last hour is as actually sample questions and answers, so the actual lesson is pretty digestible!
