The intention of this Interactive Qualifying Project was to provide an introduction to both the legal and technical aspects of products liability. This was accomplished through the reading of two texts and the examination of three products liability cases. The project concluded with a mock trial of the final case, which was presented by the IQP groups to an objective jury. The jury was then instructed to come to a verdict based on the evidence presented.
