Torts: A Practical Learning Approach introduces students to the legal concepts, key cases and contemporary issues surrounding the law of torts and offers a practical introduction to how tort principles are applied in legal practice.

Specifically designed for undergraduate law students studying torts in their early years at university, the text comprises a clear and accessible approach to understanding tort law.

A strong pedagogic structure - incorporating learning objectives, case summaries, self-test questions, and further readings - supports learning while hypothetical scenarios assist in the development of essential legal skills.

The third edition has been fully revised and updated to reflect recent developments in case law and legislation, ensuring the text is fully aligned with both basic and optional topics within a torts syllabus. A detailed appendix provides helpful guidance on how to conduct legal research, fostering the development of a fundamental legal skill.

The text is supported with online supplementary materials for both lecturers and students.

 

This review was first published in Ethos Journal of the ACT Law Society September 2014 Issue 233.

• Practical, skills oriented, real world, student-friendly approach
