Defences in Tort
Edited by Andrew Dyson, James Goudkamp and Frederick Wilmot-Smith
This book is the first in a series of essay collections on defences in private law. It addresses defences to liability arising in tort. The essays range from those adopting a primarily doctrinal approach to others that examine the law from a more theoretical or historical perspective. Some essays focus on individual defences, while some are concerned with the links between defences, or with how defences relate to the structure of tort law as a whole. A number of the essays also draw upon concepts and literature that have been developed mainly in relation to the criminal law and consider their application to tort law. The essays make several original contributions to this complex, important but neglected field of academic enquiry.
Andrew Dyson is an Assistant Professor in Private Law at the London School of Economics and Political Science.
James Goudkamp is a Fellow of Keble College, Oxford and an Associate Professor in the Oxford Law Faculty.
