Tort Law

Third Edition

Kirsty Horsey and Erika Rackley

  • Problem questions are included at the start of relevant chapters. This grounds the theory in practical examples right from the start and gives students valuable guidance and practice for answering worked-through problem questions. Annotated versions of the problem questions can be found in the appendix, and further pointers online.
  • Innovative pedagogical features such as 'counterpoint' and 'pause for reflection' boxes highlight contentious areas of the law and encourage students to think more deeply and critically about the law.
  • Clear exposition of the law and case boxes in each chapter ensure students have a solid black-letter basis upon which to develop a critical appreciation of tort law.
  • Diagrams and tables are used where appropriate to clarify key points.
  • End-of-chapter questions and selected further reading assist independent learning and provide areas for discussion in seminars or tutorials.
  • Extensive Online Resource Centre which includes downloadable annotated judgments, statutes and problem questions, answer guidance to questions in the book, glossary, annotated web links, and additional content on elements of a claim in the tort of negligence and product liability. For lecturers, there are also extensive resources, including a customisable test bank of 200 questions.
