This best-selling undergraduate textbook from leading academics Kirsty Horsey & Erika Rackley gives a comprehensive grounding in tort law and carefully chosen learning features help students to become engaged and critical thinkers.

This lively and though-provoking account allows students to understand rather than simply learn the law. The problem questions in each chapter help students to understand how the law works in its practical context and to begin to consider potential issues and debates. Carefully chosen features such as 'counterpoint' and 'pause for reflection' boxes enable students to think more deeply and critically about the law.
