The text incorporates relevant materials, extracts from leading judgments, articles and reports of review bodies on tort law.

It will be useful to those participating in seminars and tutorials and will enable them to take part in a good level of discussion. This new edition of Sourcebook on Torts has been fully revised and incorporates the Human Rights Act 1998. The effect of the European Courts decision in Osman is now being felt, as is evident from the judgments of the House of Lords in Barrett v Enfield BC. The Law Commission's proposals on liability for psychiatric illness are included. Developments in the tort of nuisance, the defence of qualified privilege and damages are also scrutinized. Several Law Commission reports and the Social Security (Recovery of Benefits) Act 1997 are also extracted, as are other new pieces of legislation, such as the Damages Act 1996 and the Defamation Act 1996.

Sourcebook on the English Legal System is a key collection of primary legal sources,Committee and Commission reports, explanatory documents and articles. A variety of critical articles and commentaries complement and expand upon these materials. Since the first edition of this book in 1996, the English legal system has undergone major and comprehensive changes. As a result of these profound changes, this second edition has been thoroughly updated to include presentation and analysis of three landmark pieces of legislation: the Access to Justice Act 1999, the Civil Procedure Rules 1998 and the Human Rights Act 1998. Other changes abound: the Auld Committee has undertaken a root and branch review of the criminal justice system. The Crown Prosecution Service has been re-organised, the nature of judicial impartiality has been authoritatively defined, the role of the jury has been exposed to intense public and legal debate, liability of advocates for courtroom negligence has been established, the appeals system has been altered, alternative dispute resolution has become a major feature of British life, and European law has continued to widen and deepen its application. The Sourcebook guides the reader through these areas, as well as the more traditional elements of any course on the English legal system, with clarity and insight.
