Tort Law 11th Edition PDF Free Download

The book Tort Law is written by Catherine Elliott and Frances Quinn. As always, the period between the publication of the last edition of this book and the preparation of this one has seen many developments in tort law. In this eleventh edition, we cover the first cases to reach the courts since the 2013 Defamation Act came into force, as well as new developments in ever-evolving privacy law or, as we’ve now been officially told, we may call it, misuse of private information. Other areas that have seen interesting cases in the last couple of years include the defense of illegality, the liability of public bodies for negligence, vicarious liability, and the tort in Wilkinson v Downton, often assumed as a relic of history and, yet capable of giving a very realistic contraction just when you least expect it.

In this edition, we have restructured coverage for negligence, breaking up what was once a single chapter so that economic loss liability and psychiatric injury now have chapters of their own. This was in response to suggestions from the speakers, who felt that these topics had become too large and unwieldy to sit in a general chapter on negligence principles. We agree and hope that the new structure will make these two rather difficult areas more accessible, but we would be interested in hearing from other teachers and students about the change.
