What links a bottle of ginger beer, A-list celebrities, the first female beefeater at the Tower of London and Mothercare? Answer: they have all had to rely on, been affected by or have been the subject of a tort law action.

Written in a lively and accessible style, this new textbook will provide students with a strong understanding of the key legal principles and case law at play in this area. A range of innovative in-chapter features support students throughout their study and encourage them to use and develop their legal and employability skills.
