Overview

This volume has been updated to cover the consolidation which has taken place after the momentous changes of recent years, and shows how the courts have responded to those changes. New cases include:

"Stovin v Wise", the "fire service" case, "Frost v Chief Constable of South Yorkshire" and "Hunter v Canary Wharf". In addition, the material in a number of chapters has been rearranged to reflect current thinking on tort.

The law of torts is based almost entirely on case law and therefore a thorough knowledge of the leading cases is essential if the student is to understand the subject. This selection has been based on the standard cases, and the extracts attempt to provide the essence of the reasoning and the decision. Statutory materials are included where necessary.
