Hit the ground running with the best-selling tort law textbook from leading academics Kirsty Horsey & Erika Rackley. Are you new to tort law and seeking to understand its complexities?

This textbook provides a lively, insightful and thought-provoking account which assumes no prior knowledge. As well as comprehensive coverage of the legal concepts and case law, there are a range of carefully chosen features to develop understanding including annotated judgments and statutes, diagrams, and problem questions in each chapter. Do you want to become a reflective and critical thinker?

This book will help you not just to learn but rather to understand tort law, and to think about why the law is the way it is and how it could be different. Make your studies interesting and intellectually stimulating with questions raised throughout the book, including in the 'counterpoint' and 'pause for reflection' features. Do you want to take your studies further and engage with current issues? The new edition includes some of the latest research, policy, and debate.

The discussion continues beyond the textbook too: there are video clips from recent news items and links to topical sites on the Online Resource Centre and you can follow the author Twitter feed for updates and comment.
