Tort presents an accessible and current picture of the law of torts and is ideal for those approaching the subject for the first time. The text succinctly covers all the major concepts in the law of torts and clearly illustrates how they work in practice by reference to the major cases in this field and the main statutory provisions. In addition to explaining the law, the authors critically evaluate recent reforms and forthcoming changes. The text considers the impact of the Human Rights Act 1998 on the law of torts, recent reports by the Law Commission and recent cases. Tort is essential reading for all undergraduate law students. Its clarity and comprehensive coverage also make it an indispensable resource for those on modular or GDL courses.
