Casebook on Torts is essential reading for students new to studying tort law at undergraduate level, providing a comprehensive, portable library of the leading cases in the field.

It presents an impressive range of carefully edited extracts, which clearly illustrate the essence and reasoning behind each decision made. Concise author commentary focuses the reader on the key elements within the extracts, while end-of-chapter questions encourages them to check their understanding as they progress.

Statutory materials have been included where they are necessary to understand the subject. The book is an indispensable companion for tort law students. The text is supported by an Online Resource Centre which provides regular updates on developments in the law as well as web links to aid further study.
