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. New Cases include: Wong v Parkside NHS Trust on harassment, Z v UK on duty of care, Lister v Hesley Hall on vicarious liability, A v National Blood Authority on product liability, and Loutchansky v The Times on defamation.
