Robert Stevens, Professor of Commercial Law, University College, London 'McBride and Bagshaw's Tort Law is the best of the English student texts.' Jason Neyers, Associate Professor of Law, University of Western Ontario 'The authors provide excellent and quite clear explanations for the main principles of tort law, including discussions of hypothetical cases that are used to explain difficult concepts in ways that are very helpful for students.'
