As the leading textbook on the law of tort, Winfield & Jolowicz on Tort is a definitive and all embracing guide to the subject.

Though centred firmly on English law, the work covers significant developments in Commonwealth countries and, where appropriate, European systems of tort law.

Winfield & Jolowicz on Tort:-

  • Goes through the nature and functions of tort law to give a firm understanding of the purpose of tort law
  • Details the rules and principles that make up English tort law and explains how the law has developed
  • Looks at the remedies available to show the many different ways in which resolution to a problem can be achieved
  • Includes extensive use of case citations
New for the eighteenth edition:-
  • Covers developments including those in causation; liability of public authorities; human rights and tort law; the development of privacy and the "Reynolds defence"; and the recasting of the economic torts
  • Analyses key case law including Barker v Corus; Jameel v Wall St Journal; Mitchell v Glasgow CC; OBG vAllan; and Rothwell v Chemical & Insulating Co.
