Tort law encompasses a diverse range of civil wrongs for which the law allocates liability. It is a richly-textured body of 'black letter' doctrine, combined with judicial pragmatism and public policy. In spite of this complex and multi-layered nature, the principal purpose of the subject is to solve a wide array of 'real life problems' in a coherent, principled and consistent fashion, whilst balancing the needs of individual litigants and society. This book analyses tort law as a series of principles, with detailed accompanying analytical discussion, providing readers with an incisive and clear understanding of the subject. Each tort is carefully structured and examined within a consistent methodology of analysis, having regard to its preconditions, elements and defences. This approach enhances the clarity of tort law doctrine and policy for the assistance of students, practitioners, litigants, policy-makers and law-reformers.

This exceptional collection of twenty-two essays on the philosophical fundamentals of tort law assembles many of the world's leading commentators on this particularly fascinating conjunction of law and philosophy. The contributions range broadly, from inquiries into how tort law derives from Aristotle, Aquinas, and Kant to the latest economic and rights-based theories of legal reponsibility. This is truly a multi-national production, with contributions from several distinguished Oxford scholars of law and philosophy and many prominent scholars from the United States, Canada, and Israel. A provocative closing essay by one of the world's leading moral philosophers illuminates how tort law enables philosophers to observe the abstract theories of their discipline put to the concrete test in the legal resolution of real-world controversies based on principles of right and wrong.

This is a completely revised and expanded second edition, building on the first edition with two principal aims: to elucidate the role that domestic tort principles play in securing to citizens the human rights standards laid down in the European Convention on Human Rights, including the new 'remedy' under the Human Rights Act 1998; and to evaluate tort principles for compliance with those standards. The first edition was written when the Human Rights Act 1998 was newly enacted and many questions existed as to its potential impact on tort law. Answers to many of the questions, which were raised at that time, are only now emerging. Therefore, the text has been updated to reflect these developments. Whether it is appropriate to attribute particular goals and functions to tort law is highly contested and the analysis begins by locating the discussion within these contemporary debates. The author goes on to examine the extent to which the action against public authorities under section 7 of the Act has impacted on the development of common law principles, as well as the issue of horizontal effect of the Act between non-state actors. New chapters include: 'A Human Rights Based Approach to Tort Law' and 'Public Authority Liability and Privacy – From Misuse of Private Information to Autonomy.'
