Tort law is based almost entirely upon case law and a thorough understanding of the important cases is crucial for students of this subject. The case selection for this book has been based upon the standard cases, and the extracts provide the essence of the reasoning and the decision. Where applicable, extracts from statutes as well as European legislation have also been included. This eighth edition includes key recent cases, such as Marcic v Thames Water, Kiam v MGN, Fairchild v Glenhave, Johnson v BJW property, and Mirvahedy v Henley. It also includes cases which involve the new Human Rights Act.
