Tort law is a core element of every law degree in England and Wales. Unlocking Torts will ensure you grasp the main concepts with ease. This book explains in detailed, yet straightforward, terms:

  • Negligence and negligence related torts including occupiers' liability and employers' liability;
  • Land based torts such as trespass, nuisance and Rylands v Fletcher;
  • Trespass to the person;
  • Defamation and other torts relating to reputation;
  • Economic torts, breach of a statutory duty, vicarious liability, defences and remedies.
The fifth edition is fully up to date with key case law including the recent decision of Robinson v Chief Constable of West Yorkshire Police [2018] UKSC and Darnley v Croydon Health Services NHS Trust [2018] UKSC 50 amongst others.

The Unlocking the Law series is designed specifically to make the law accessible. Each chapter opens with a list of aims and objectives and contains diagrams to aid learning. Cases and judgments are prominently displayed, as are primary source quotations. Summaries help check your understanding of each chapter, there is a glossary of legal terminology. New features include problem questions with guidance on answering, as well as essay questions and answer plans, plus cases and materials exercises. All titles in the series follow the same formula and include the same features so students can move easily from one subject to another. The series covers all the core subjects required by the Bar Council and the Law Society for entry onto professional qualifications as well as popular option units.
