Publisher's Synopsis

This accessible textbook provides an introductory guide to tort law, with a structured explanation of the key concepts and doctrines. Using a comparative approach, the discussion is illustrated with case law and provisions from three key jurisdictions: England, France and Germany. With liberal reference to other codes and cases from around the world, the book gives readers a contextual understanding and will appeal to classes with a global outlook.



Key Features:


  • Examples of different solutions show how tort law is implemented in a variety of jurisdictions

  • Direct comparison of legal systems helps readers to match different kinds of property or damage in civil and common law systems

  • Translated provisions from codes and statutes facilitate access to the systems of French and German law in particular

  • Clarification of corresponding concepts and terminology, as well as guidelines and examples to help readers find their way in a legal environment that is not restricted to a single jurisdiction

  • Introductory guidance to tort law systems outside Europe



Providing readers with a working knowledge of major tort law systems as well as a greater understanding of the main concepts in tort law, this textbook will be an important resource for both undergraduate and postgraduate students.
