A new Torts prof contacted me asking if I'd ever posted about the relative merits of the many Torts casebooks, and I haven't. I haven't looked at other ones seriously since 2004 (when I started), so I don't have a lot to say -- but I suspect some readers might.
I use the David Robertson et al. book from West (I forget which West entity it is). It's tightly-edited, well-organized, relatively short (in a four-hour course, I like covering at least half of the book to avoid annoying students), and pretty current. Plus, the authors are responsive, which was especially important to me when I was starting out.
What book do you use? Please post your thoughts on various casebooks in the comments.
(I'm at AALS today so comments will be approved sporadically.)
