AbstractThe second edition of this unique, award-winning text introduces students to the legal concepts, key cases and contemporary issues surrounding the law of Torts and offers a practical introduction to how tort principles are applied in legal practice. Specifically designed for undergraduate law students studying Torts in their early years at university, the text comprises a clear and accessible approach to the teaching of Torts law. A strong pedagogic structure, incorporating learning objectives; case summaries; self-test questions; and further readings supports learning while hypothetical scenarios assist in the development of essential legal skills. Fully revised and updated to reflect recent developments in case law, the new edition includes additional chapters on "Defamation" and "Intentional Torts relating to Goods" to ensure the text is fully aligned with both basic and optional topics within a Torts syllabus. The text is strongly supported with online ancillary materials including research sources, news and caselinks.
