Overview

Tried and tested by generations of students, Street on Torts can be trusted to provide a wide-ranging overview, and a clear and accurate explanation of tort law.

Students new to tort law can read Street chapter by chapter as they work through their lectures: the book is carefully structured to map closely to typical undergraduate law courses, providing all the essential material in one volume. The book offers students a contextualized and thought-provoking account of tort law by ensuring they are given the 'bigger picture' surrounding the main torts discussed in the book. It also provides a strong analysis of case law, explaining how torts actually work and examining the social purposes behind them.

An Online Resource Centre accompanies the book, providing updates on recent cases, self-test multiple choice questions, useful further reading, and useful web links.
