Elliott and Quinn’s Tort Law clarifies the essential concepts behind the law, making it easier for students to understand and apply the legal rules. The book sets each tort in its social context to make clear when and why claims might be brought, and then provides a clear explanation of the rules relating to each tort.

Each chapter includes discussion of problems with the current law, helping students to develop a critical and analytical approach. Through reference to topical cases and issues, the authors show that tort law is an interesting and relevant to today’s society.
