Product Description

From the Back Cover

“A clearly set out textbook, which makes use of some excellent pedagogical learning features to assist the students to understand the various tort law topics.”  Dr. Dinusha Mendis, Bournemouth University

 

“Clear, concise and extremely well-written, this is a very good introductory guide to the area.”

Assoc. Professor Jason Lowther, Plymouth University

 

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.

Catherine Elliott is a qualified Barrister and Senior Lecturer in Law at City University, London. She has extensive experience of teaching law.

 

Frances Quinn is an award-winning journalist with a particular interest I, and experience of the law.

This book is a basic introduction to tort law, but as a comprehensive resource for A-Level law (Tort) it completely fails. It is insufficiently detailed in a number of areas to understand and explain the principles behind some of the cases. This makes it really difficult to understand the subject matter and convert that into examination success. To have a reasonable understanding of this subject you really need to search quite a few of the cases in the book to fill in the details. Without "googleing" cases for further explanation, you can get really lost.

As with all law books there are a few errors, but there was a big error (it looks like an error to me) on the subject of trespass to land. It says that for a trespass to land to be committed it must be in the "defendant's possession", i.e. the defendant must have an interest in the land e.g. a tenancy or lease etc; this is repeated later. Surely if it was in the defendant's possession you could not trespass on land you had an interest in? Would the defendant bring an action against himself? It doesn't make sense to me. It then says the claimant must interfere with the land [for an action in trespass]. This makes no sense either, surely the defendant must interfere with the land. This is the kind of thing that makes the reader do independent research to confirm what the author is saying. It is a pity because there really are few decent books on tort. This book is in the ninth edition and this is just sloppy. (If I am wrong, then this part of the book is unclear).

This is a more simplified version than the Gillaker and Beckwith but it is also not as detailed. It helps break it down easier which is sometimes helpful. It would have four stars if it was in a kindle version

I'm finding this book very useful and easy to follow, even for someone like me who has never studied law before.

I must agree with "Guy in London" on the trespassing chapter (page 324 of 9th edition) there must be a mix up between claimant and defendant. Quite an extraordinary mistake ...
