Elliott and Quinn’s Tort Law provides an accessible introduction to the essential concepts of this core subject, and continues to be the book of choice for undergraduate students year after year. Written in the authors’ trademark clear and engaging style, the book lucidly presents the fundamentals of the law and also introduces critical and contextual analysis to help you start to develop your own critique and deepen your understanding of tort law.
The authors also use a range of tools to help you get to grips with the subject more quickly, and to reinforce your understanding:
- Key cases boxes, which help you identify and remember the leading cases and rulings in contract law;
- Topical issue boxes, which help you see the law working in a real-life context;
- Diagrams which help you visualise complex legal processes.
