The S.C. Law of Torts, Fourth Edition by Profs. F. Patrick Hubbard and Robert L. Felix
S.C. Law of Torts has been the standard torts reference for the S.C. bench and bar since 1990. The Fourth Edition has been substantially revised by Profs. Hubbard and Felix and contains not only recent changes in the law, but also new textual analysis to provide a more extensive and up-to-date reference. It is comprehensive in scope, covering everything from policies behind tort law to causes of action, defenses, damages and the allocation of liability. The book is meticulously researched, thoroughly cross-referenced, heavily annotated and logically organized, and includes research through June 30, 2011.
