2009 Edition of Handbook Available Shortly

Day on Torts: A Handbook for Tennessee Tort Lawyers 2009 is almost ready to go to press.   The 2009 edition will include reference to all of the Tennessee appellate cases on tort law released in the last year, add over 20 new statutes of interest to tort lawyers, and update rules of civil procedure, evidence, and appellate procedure.

Importantly, the 2009 edition will includes at least 20 new chapters.  Each chapter addresses the leading case on an important tort law subject.  The additional  chapters mean that the book will now include over 250 subjects.

The 2009 edition also includes a much more detailed table of contents in the "Selected Statutes" section.  We believe this change will make that section of the book even easier to use.

The new edition will be over 1000 pages.  We are approaching the point where we may need to split it into two volumes, and in 2009 we will be soliciting input from our readers to see if they want to see that occur.  

The book will ship in late October 2008.  The list price is  $190 including sales tax, shipping and handling, down slightly from last year.  Those who attend one of this year’s Justice Programs seminars may purchase the book for only $150 (including  sales tax, shipping and handling). Discounts are available for multiple copies shipped to the same address. 

There are still some copies of the 2008 book available.   Those who order and pay for the 2008 book between August 15 and October 1, 2008 will receive the 2009 book at no additional charge.
