Products Liability: Introduction

This research guide is a selective guide to assist the legal researcher in conducting research in the area of product liability. It is not comprehensive in scope or intended to be a catchall source, but rather to act as a starting point for the researcher to find additional sources and relevant information. At its core, the guide attempts to lead the researcher to up-to-date items held by the  Western Michigan University-Cooley Law School libraries. Additionally, the guide is tilted towards Michigan sources on the topic while other state specific guides have been omitted. In 1995 the Tort Reform Act changed significantly Michigan products liability Law. This pathfinder will emphasize materials after 1995 that take into account the changes in the law.

 Each WMU-Cooley library branch has different specific holdings on-site, and this guide will identify them as follows: “L” for Lansing, “AH” for Auburn Hills, “GR” for Grand Rapids, and “TB” for Tampa Bay.

The guide is organized according to the topics listed to the left, in the guide outline. 

In the sections of the guide focusing on print materials, the "location" provides the call number for a work. Clicking on the title takes a user to the relevant entry in the catalog. Where possible, guide sections about statutes link to the appropriate law.

And please contact us if you have any questions or need further guidance.
