I do not have an answer to question (sorry, but you'll see why), but I do have a question of my own. Are you guys taking Products Liability as a separate course or as part of your Torts class? I covered Products Liability briefly in Torts, but we were told to take the course if we really wanted to learn it. If you guys are taking the course, then my question is: Is it a worthwhile course to take? I was trying to figure out some electives to next year (third year) and it came up as a possibility. I know all classes are taught differently, so I'm really just asking about the subject matter. Is it dense? Or is it manageable with little outside effort? I have a few of the more difficult courses to take next year (e.g., Admin Law, Trusts and Estates, Income Tax) and I am not looking to take any other tough courses. Sorry I couldn't answer the original question, but I would love to get some insight on this. Thanks.

I am taking it as a separate course. We covered it in tort too. I dont feel that it is extraordinarily difficult, just more in-depth focus on what we covered in torts, ie. understanding the changes in the Restatements and case law.

+1. Also, did other people cover the multiple evolution of products liability? I am just wondering if deal is something unique to my class, or if it is fairly common.
If by "multiple evolutions of PL" you mean negligence -> res ipsa -> 2nd Restatement -> 3rd Restatement, then yes. However, the other two torts sections at my school did not even touch PL. From reading these boards, I get the feeling that PL is not often covered in depth in 1L torts.
