Street on Torts provides an insightful and thorough treatment of tort law with a focus on key concepts and clear explanations. This book builds upon the excellent legacy of its previous, celebrated authors with a renewed focus on the needs of today's students.
Alongside perceptive coverage of the key principles of tort law, succinct case extracts and accompanying analyses allow students to consider the law in context and understand how it is applied in practice. Key Issues boxes help to guide students through each chapter, whilst clear conclusions offer the opportunity for consolidation.
The 15th edition of the book also sees the introduction of problem questions at the end of each chapter, which allow students to actively apply their knowledge of the law whilst practising essential analytical and essay writing skills.
This book is accompanied by online resources, including answer guidance for each of the problem questions in the book, an additional chapter on animal torts and updates with details of key developments in the law since publication.
