Written by two leading scholars, Tort Law combines detailed coverage of the legal principles, supported by hypothetical case scenarios and guided further reading, with critical discussion of the key academic debates and literature in the subject making it ideal for use by anyone studying tort law at undergraduate or postgraduate level.

Extensively updated, this new edition covers all important case-law and legislative developments, including the expansion of vicarious liability in Mohamud v Wm Morrison Supermarkets, the treatment of the notion of 'defect' under the Consumer Protection Act 1987 in Wilkes v Depuy International Ltd, the reinvigoration of the tort in Wilkinson v Downton by O (a child) v Rhodes, the recognition of a tort of the malicious institution of civil proceedings in Willers v Joyce, and the attempts to reform the law on the defence of illegality in Patel v Mirza.
