This Interactive Qualifying Project focused on the legal aspect of engineering. Two sources were researched and used as a foundation for an understanding of products liability law. Three cases were then investigated and analyzed using the principles previously learned through engineering coursework. This analysis was then considered from a legal perspective to determine which party was at fault in each case. Two of the cases were then presented in a mock trial to a panel of jurors.
