Tort Law Directions

Seventh Edition

Carol Brennan and Vera Bermingham


  • Gain a complete understanding of the topic: we won't overload or leave your students short, just the right amount of detail conveyed clearly
  • Understand the law in context: with scene-setting introductions and highlighted case extracts, the practical importance of the law becomes clear
  • Identify when and how to evaluate the law critically: we'll introduce the key areas of debate and give your students the confidence to question the law
  • Direct and consolidate their knowledge: visually engaging learning and self-testing features aid understanding and help your students tackle assessments with confidence
  • Elevate their learning: with the ground-work in place your students can aspire to take their learning to the next level, the authors provide direction on going further
  • Also available as an e-book with functionality, navigation features, and links that offer extra learning support

New to this Edition:

  • The order of chapters has been re-designed to better match tort law courses, with negligence discussed first, and trespass later in the book
  • Updated coverage of new cases and developments, including Robinson v Chief Constable of West Yorkshire (2018) (on duty of care in negligence and police liability), Poole BC v GN (2019) (on duty of care of public bodies), Lachaux v Independent Print Ltd (2019) (on the 'serious harm' threshold in defamation), and Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis v DSD and NBV (2018) (on police liability and the ECHR)
