Free PDF Casebooks via SSRN

See North Dakota law prof Eric Johnson’s blog post about his recently released free, downloadable torts casebook. The first volume, now available on SSRN, covers negligence and health care liability. Johnson plans to complete a freely downloadable second volume for Spring 2011. Volume Two will include intentional torts, strict liability, economic torts, dignitary torts and a few other subjects.

In his post, Johnson notes that he was inspired by New Hampshire law prof Thomas Field’s Fundamentals of Intellectual Property: Cases & Materials, which is a free download from SSRN. Field has also made available on SSRN his Introduction to Administrative Process: Cases & Materials. Both titles were once published by Carolina Academic Press but “the author, now holding the copyright, can revise it more frequently.”
