This Interactive Qualifying Project studies the inter-workings of product liability law and its relationship with engineering. We will review three real product liability suits and read through two books about the trial system. The end of the project concludes with a mock trial based on the three cases 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.
