Tort law encompasses a diverse range of civil wrongs for which the law allocates liability. It is a richly-textured body of 'black letter' doctrine, combined with judicial pragmatism and public policy. In spite of this complex and multi-layered nature, the principal purpose of the subject is to solve a wide array of 'real life problems' in a coherent, principled and consistent fashion, whilst balancing the needs of individual litigants and society.

This book analyses tort law as a series of principles, with detailed accompanying analytical discussion, providing readers with an incisive and clear understanding of the subject. Each tort is carefully structured and examined within a consistent methodology of analysis, having regard to its preconditions, elements and defences. This approach enhances the clarity of tort law doctrine and policy for the assistance of students, practitioners, litigants, policy-makers and law-reformers.
