About the Authors
  • Tort law and criminal law are closely bound together but their relationship rarely receives sustained and rigorous scrutiny. This is the first significant project in England and Wales to address that shortcoming. Building on growing interest amongst both academics and practitioners in the relationship between tort and crime, it draws together leading experts to chart the field and explore key points of interest. It uses a range of perspectives from legal theory, doctrine, legal history and comparative law to address some of the most important and interesting links between tort and crime. Examples include how the illegality defence operates to avoid stultification of the law, the difference between criminal and civil causation, how the Motor Insurers' Bureau not only insures but acts to enforce laws and alter behaviour, and why civil law only very rarely restores specific property but the criminal law does it daily.

    • Overview of the places where tort and crime connect allows the reader to make sense of the huge and complex case law and literature for the first time
    • Detailed analysis of specific cases and problems, and the inclusion of proposals for reform, enable the reader to develop a practical approach to a range of problems
    • Brings together a diverse group of leading specialists, including distinguished writers internationally known in their fields and up-and-coming authors already making a name for themselves
