Product Description

Review

"I am particularly impressed with the writing style.  Unlike so many prose dense works on Tort, this book is written in a clear and direct way that nevertheless does not come across as patronising.."
Mariette Jones, CSET Lecturer in Law, Middlesex University Business School

"What Turner sets out in his excellent text book is a formidable explanation of the subject of Torts in easily understandable terms for what can be a difficult area of law for many to study (and teach) although it may look superficially easy" - Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers

AN ENTIRELY NEW AND GROUNDBREAKING STYLE OF UNDERGRADUATE LAW TEXT BOOK FOR THE LAW OF TORTS USING INTERACTIVE MATERIALS

An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers

As Chris Turner says in the fourth edition of this excellent ‘Unlocking The Law’ series from Routledge, “a study of the law of torts can prove fascinating because it is really all about people, the problems that they have and the ways that these might be overcome in law”.

What Turner sets out in his excellent text book is a formidable explanation of the subject of Torts in easily understandable terms for what can be a difficult area of law for many to study (and teach) although it may look superficially easy! He describes Tort Law as covering civil wrongs so the topics areas vary widely “in their content and context from basic negligence actions for motoring accidents, through assaults encountered in sporting activities to the interference of problem neighbours”.

As with all the Routledge text books, this particular title is probably the best on the market as an introduction to the way in which “the law of torts” operates in England and Wales and the ‘self-testing’ throughout with the various activities will assist the student with a measure of progress as the course develops. We also consider that this book has a much wider potential readership than undergraduates or professionals and is for anyone interested in the development of this topical law area.

One of the main reasons why we feel that the Routledge series of legal textbooks to be of outstanding value both in terms of cost and in content is the way in which their authors (all legal experts) explain substantive legal issues in such a readable fashion.

We also consider that this book has a much wider potential readership than undergraduates or professionals and is for anyone interested in the development of this topical law area.

One of the main reasons why we feel that the Routledge series of legal textbooks to be of outstanding value both in terms of cost and in content is the way in which their authors (all legal experts) explain substantive legal issues in such a readable fashion.

For both tutors and students, a decision on which textbook or revision book to use is always difficult but it is clear to us from the feedback we have received from students that the Routledge texts lead the legal field. Many of their titles also have excellent links to websites sometimes marked as ‘companion websites’ which also add much assistance to the hard-pressed learner and is a great additional tool for all.

We would also say that the formats used by Routledge for their books are very much of a mainstream formula for legal texts which eases the student into methods of legal reasoning for those just beginning their legal studies and for all undergraduates: they certainly helped us with our preparation so do ensure you look very carefully at all the titles they have on offer!

For the ‘Unlocking’ series, Routledge use a number of special features: aims and objectives at the start of each chapter; key facts charts to consolidate knowledge; diagrams to aid learning; summaries to help check an understanding of each chapter; problem questions with guidance on answering; self-testing and a glossary of legal terminology.

For us reviewing the book, the companion website is an innovation! Therefore, do look at the features at the beginning of the book which will assist with your learning and engagement with the subject matter.

There is much food for thought throughout this excellent undergraduate primer on where we are and where we are going with the issue of Tort Law in the 21st century.

This book covers all the main topic areas on undergraduate and professional law syllabuses and it provides a full understanding of each with supporting resources from the ‘unlockingthelaw.co.uk’ website which will give the student an indispensable foundation of understanding of the subject.

The law is stated as at 1st August 2013.
