This unit builds upon Law of Torts I. Torts II considers the final element, quantum of damage, and also considers how negligence law operates in particular situations such as pure psychiatric injury. Consideration is also given to some of the raft of pro-defendant legislation passed as a result of the so-called public liability crisis in the early 2000s. Torts II also provides a brief examination of a number of other torts namely, liability for animals, breach of statutory duty, trespass to the person, trespass to land and private nuisance.
The unit will give students a good understanding of the black-letter law, whilst incorporating skills-based approaches. Students will be encouraged to take a critical view of the law, particularly with regard to tort reform.
