Ellen Bublick (Arizona) has compiled The Concise Restatement of Torts (3d ed.) for the ALI. The book draws on 5 projects from the Restatement (Third) of Torts and is organized like many first-year casebooks. The Concise Restatement of Torts is under 400 pages, was published on earlier this week, and is available through ALI here.
I have never used a supplement in my Torts course. I have recommended several secondary sources (and will continue to do so). However, I taught Contracts for the first time last year and found a supplement useful in that course. Based on that experience, I decided a supplement would help my Torts students as well. I have been looking around for the right Torts supplement, and this is it. Virtually every topic I cover in my two-semester course is in The Concise Restatement of Torts.
