This Interactive Qualifying Project studies the inter-workings of product liability law and its relationship with engineering. Throughout the project several product liability lawsuits were analyzed from both a lawyer and engineer's perspectives. The end of the project concludes with a mock trial based on the last case reviewed. A jury of peers is asked to make the final judgment on the presentation of case materials. As a result of the project, there is a greater understanding of the engineering world and its effect on society.
