Principles of Tort Law, Paperback / softback Book


Presenting the law of tort as a body of principles, this authoritative textbook leads students to an incisive and clear understanding of the subject.

Each tort is carefully structured and examined within a consistent analytical framework that guides students through its preconditions, elements, defences and remedies.

Clear summaries and comparisons accompany the detailed exposition, and further support is provided by numerous diagrams and tables, which clarify complex aspects of the law.

Critical discussion of legal judgments encourages students to develop strong analytical and case-reading skills, whilst key reform proposals and leading cases from other jurisdictions illustrate different potential solutions to conundrums in tort law.

A rich companion website, featuring ten additional chapters and sections on more advanced areas of tort law, completes the learning package.

Written specifically for students, the text is also ideal for practitioners, litigants, policymakers and law reformers seeking a comprehensive and accurate understanding of the law.
