The Product Liability Project consisted of three real-life product liability cases that involved Professor Hagglund as an expert witness. Groups of two partners had to research each case and determine which party was at fault. Then for the final presentation each group had to present its case in front of a mock jury, which decided who was at fault. This project represents how the real-life product liability lawsuits work and the amount of time and money it takes for someone to present a case before a jury. Since most of the students that are involved in this project are engineers, it will help each engineer in the future to be properly prepared as an expert witness.
