Advanced and Business Tort Law is an ideal casebook with statutes and problems for an advanced and personal torts courses, a business and unfair competition torts courses, or survey of advanced tort law courses.

Advanced and Business Tort Law is designed for advanced torts classes with a detailed treatment of dignitary and personal economic torts or business and unfair competition torts or a summary treatment of both. Unlike other casebooks, Advanced and Business Tort Law is ideal for any of the common combinations of the subject matter discussed in upper-level torts classes. The authors’ approach emphasizes the elements of each tort and the policies underlying the tort doctrines. Even more than in their Basic Tort Law casebook, appreciating the statutes relevant to each tort is critical because of significant doctrinal differences among jurisdictions.

Key Features of this Edition:

  • Ideal for either dignitary and personal economic torts classes, business and unfair competition classes, or a survey class covering all torts not included in introductory torts classes.
  • Complements Basic Tort Law: Cases, Statutes, and Problems providing complete coverage of modern tort law.
  • The casebook emphasizes principal cases decided in the 2020s covering a broad range of present-day issues, including invasion of the right of privacy, misappropriation of persona, misrepresentation, defamation, the economic loss rule, fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, interference with contractual relations, bad faith performance of contract, commercial disparagement, false and deceptive advertising, trademark infringement, trade secrets, copyright infringement, malicious prosecution, and SLAPPS.
  • Advanced and Business Tort Law including contemporary cases, issues, and perspectives of cultural relevance. They include unauthorized use of the identities of television stars and celebrities, trends in the law of slander and libel, undisclosed use of paid social influencers, media harassment of public figures, Facebook’s banning of controversial posts and defamatory postings, and online reviews, legal claims for police misconduct and modern trends in police immunity, and marketing of performance-enhancing beverages.
