The previous editions of Torts were highly regarded for their clarity of explanation and engaging writing style, and this new fourth edition fully retains each of these qualities. The text has been extensively revised and updated, and there is a new chapter on privacy. The enhanced layout includes end of chapter summaries and self-test exercises and an extensive bibliography. This is therefore an ideal companion to the subject for both law undergraduates and GDL/CPE students.

Reviews

'Mullis and Oliphant's textbook deconstructs this notoriously difficult subject in a way that makes it readily comprehensible and, unlike other similarly accessible textbooks, it manages to do this without glossing over the many inconsistencies in the relevant case law. Tort textbooks tend to fall into two categories: the simple but basic and the advanced but dense. With this one, the reader has access to the best of both worlds.' - Dr Claire McIvor, Birmingham Law School, University of Birmingham
