The sixth edition of this popular textbook provides a clear analysis of all aspects of the law of tort, and comprehensively updates the fifth edition. The aim of the book is to explain the principles of tort law in such a way as to enable students to understand them and apply them effectively. Particular attention is paid to areas of law that students find the most difficult, and to the context within which the law is evolving, with the intention of making these topics accessible and enjoyable.
The legal analysis covers many hundreds of cases, and offers insights into developing areas of negligence, employers' liability, occupiers' liability, torts relating to land, defamation, quantum of damage and other mainstream topics. Since the publication of the last edition of the book there have been significant developments in the law of negligence, trespass to the person, causation and remoteness of damage, the defence of consent and employers' liability - especially in relation to psychiatric injury. New trends are identified and discussed in depth.
