This book will help both law students and students on courses for professional qualifications to understand how to draft a claim in tort in both the High Court and the county court and how to structure advice and opinions to a client on their tortious claims. The procedural rules that govern drafting a claim,a defence, a reply and third party proceedings are set out in the book and the structure of a claim, an opinion, advice, and a defence to a claim, is explained. Optional tests and suggested draft claims, defences and opinions are supplied. The book starts with simple straightforward claims in tort and gradually takes the student through the more complex cases. Worked examples are given throughout.
