Tort simply means a civil wrong, and this book explores the law of tortious civil wrongs. There are many torts, from Negligence to nuisance to defamation, making the subject fascinating, disparate, pragmatic and sometimes inconsistent. Above all, tort law has relevance to everyday life and is therefore essential for all lawyers in training, regardless of whether they intend, ultimately, to practise in this area.

Tort Law is aimed at those studying at LLB and GDL level and features assessment-level MCQs to anticipate the format of the SQE. This is an engaging and accessible book which brings the practical and sometimes complex aspects of tort law to life with clarity and precision. The book is ideal for students who want a depth of knowledge combined with immediacy.
