Students are encouraged to understand and apply the principles of tort law effectively throughout and particular attention is paid to the context within which the law is evolving, making these topics both accessible and enjoyable.
This seventh edition has been revised and updated to take into account developments since publication of the previous edition including in the areas of privacy, negligence, personal injury and defamation. Human Rights issues are integrated throughout the text rather than treating the topic in isolation, in line with the way the subject is commonly taught.
Now more accessible and student-friendly, it includes:
advice on further reading at the end of each chapter which is intended to point students towards sources of further study and critical debate new chapter introductions, rewritten to reflect learning outcomes.
Modern Tort Law is now supported by a Companion Website which offers lecturer resources available to adopters of the book, including ‘think points’ designed to encourage reflection and debate and PowerPoints of diagrams and flowcharts contained within the text. A dedicated student section also offers weblinks, a guide to key Tort law cases, a flashcard glossary and a test bank of multiple choice questions.
