Tort Law will benefit anyone seeking a fresh and stimulating account of the law. Written in a lively and thought-provoking style, this book encourages the reader to understand, engage with, and critically reflect upon tort law.
Pedagogical features (including 'pause for reflection' and 'counterpoint' boxes) foster debate about the way tort law is, why it is this way, and how it could be different. Tort Law also provides diagrams and tables, chapter summaries, end-of-chapter questions, and annotated lists of further reading.
Where appropriate, chapters open with a problem question to place the law in its practical context and to illustrate how to apply the theory. Annotated versions of the problem questions give students pointers on how to answer them, and outline answers are available on the book's accompanying Online Resource Centre.
Tort Law is essential reading for all students studying at degree level or on the GDL.
