Now available in paperback, Landmark Cases in the Law of Tort contains thirteen essays on leading UK tort cases, ranging from the early 19th century to the present day. The cases raise a broad range of important issues across the law of tort, including such diverse areas as acts of state and public nuisance, as well as central questions relating to the tort of negligence. Several of the essays place the UK cases in their historical context in ways that change our understanding of the cases' significance. Sometimes the focus is on drawing out previously neglected aspects of cases which have been (undeservedly) assigned minor importance. Other essays explore the judicial methodologies and techniques that worked to shape leading principles of tort law. So much of tort law turns on cases, and there are so many cases that all but the most recent decisions have a tendency to become reduced to terse propositions of law, so as to keep the subject manageable. This collection shows how important it is, despite the constant temptation to compression, not to lose sight of the contexts and nuances which qualify and illuminate so many leading authorities. (Series: Landmark Cases) [Subject: Tort Law, Legal History]

About the Author:

Charles Mitchell is Professor of Law at University College London.

Review:

This is a delightful book which repays the reader many times over - with historical information, with insight into legal doctrine, jurisprudence and the context within which these cases were decided.
Torts Law Journal, Volume 19

Like the book's predecessors (on restitution and contract), Landmark Cases in the Law of Tort is painstakingly researched and well written, giving valuable insights into key tort cases which are simply not available anywhere else...The authors of Landmark Cases in the Law of Tort display masterful command of sources not normally available to legal scholars, and offer fascinating insights into cases which, in various ways, have been crucial to the development of tort law as we know it. This collection is both important and enjoyable to read, and is to be warmly recommended.

Book Description Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, United Kingdom, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Landmark Cases in the Law of Tort contains thirteen original essays on leading tort cases, ranging from the early nineteenth century to the present day. It is the third volume in a series of collected essays on landmark cases (the previous two volumes having dealt with restitution and contract). The cases examined raise a broad range of important issues across the law of tort, including such diverse areas as acts of state and public nuisance, as well as central questions relating to the tort of negligence. Several of the essays place cases in their historical context in ways that change our understanding of the case s significance. Sometimes the focus is on drawing out previously neglected aspects of cases which have been - undeservedly - assigned minor importance. Other essays explore the judicial methodologies and techniques that worked to shape leading principles of tort law.
