This Interactive Qualifying Project, Products Liability, focused on the legal aspects of engineering. We were given two literary sources: An Engineer in the Courtroom and Products Liability in a Nutshell, which provided us with a basic legal foundation in products liability litigation. The knowledge of this material was used to investigate and analyze three cases. Our analysis of these cases was based upon our newly formed legal foundation and knowledge as engineering students. In the end, we had to determine what happened and who was or was not liable in each of the three products liability cases.
