Winfield & Jolowicz on Tort has been the leading work on the subject since the first edition was published over 80 years ago, and with the publication of this twentieth edition it continues to be a clear, authoritative and comprehensive guide to this area of law. It is widely adopted for use by students, an invaluable resource for practitioners, and regarded in other legal systems as providing a definitive account of the English law of tort.

For this edition, the entire text has been thoroughly updated and several chapters have been extensively rewritten.

New in this edition:

  • Discussion of hundreds of recent cases, including Michael v Chief Constable of South Wales, Robinson v Chief Constable of West Yorkshire Police and Poole BC v GN (duty of care); Patel v Mirza (illegality); Wilkes v DePuy International (product liability); Lachaux v Independent Print Ltd (defamation); O v Rhodes (intentional infliction of physical or emotional harm); Willers v Joyce (malicious prosecution); JSC BTA Bank v Ablyazov (No.14) (conspiracy); and five major Supreme Court decisions on vicarious liability and non-delegable duties, including Barclays Bank v Various Claimants and WM Morrison Supermarkets v Various Claimants
  • A new section on damage in the law of negligence, incorporating discussion of Dryden v Johnson Matthey
  • Comprehensive coverage of new legislation, as well as the impact on existing legislation of the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union
  • More extensive citation of academic commentary
Trusted by generations of students and practitioners throughout the common law world, Winfield & Jolowicz on Tort remains the leading textbook on the English law of tort.
