About this book

Introduction

Tort is notorious as a difficult topic for students which is misleading when 'potted' by the traditional textbooks. Mullis and Oliphant present the issues clearly and helpfully, do not hide the complexities but show how they should be understood. The major focus of the book is negligence, where the authors give a full treatment of the nervous shock issue; the other torts - concerning persons, personal property and land, reputation and privacy - receive a judicious and up-to-date presentation.
