The purpose of this Interactive Qualifying Project is to gain greater understanding of the American legal system. Of particular importance is the relationship between the law and members of the engineering profession. Engineering has always included safety as a design parameter. The number of civil cases involving technical matters has grown exponentially this century with the acceptance of no-fault legislation. For this reason, engineers must be keenly aware of the legal environment in which they will work.
