Ideal as pre-course or introductory reading to LLB/CPE students, Understanding Tort Law offers an overview of the tort system for the non-lawyer or new law undergraduate. The book is written so far as possible in an accessible style, avoiding jargon and aimed at helping students in their study. Since the second edition, the text has been thoroughly updated throughout: * Chapter 1 has been rewritten, to situate tort law more clearly in its modern context * References to the Human Rights Act 1998 will be incorporated wherever necessary * Cross-references to Understanding Contract Law are included where relevant
