Butterworths Common Law Series
The law of tort occupies a central position in defining the legal obligations between individuals not to cause each other harm or injury. For academics it is a crucial area of study and for practitioners it is an essential area of knowledge. Covering a wide range of issues, from the characteristics of tortious liability to the abuse of the legal process, this new book provides an accessible, comprehensive and authoritative account of the law as it is and how it is likely to develop. It is an indispensable reference which will broaden the practitioner's understanding and knowledge of what is a fast-moving and complex area of law.
