The Products Liability IQP deals with how engineering affects lawsuits. The groups are presented with the documents of three court cases and are asked to present a case summary. The groups then present one side of each case in a mock trial to a jury of their peers. The jury returns a verdict based on the presentations. The verdict is discussed and compared with the actual outcome of the cases, which is then revealed.
