Tort Law: Cases and Materials, 5th Edition presents tort law not merely as a collection of rules but as a source of legal reasoning that introduces different perspectives. This approach emphasizes the nature of legal argument and provides opportunities to examine various issues using conceptual, theoretical, interdisciplinary, and comparative methodologies.

This edition contains new and engaging cases in order to give a faithful picture of tort law in the common law jurisdictions of Canada. These cases have been carefully edited, oftentimes presenting contrasting views on the same issue to stimulate critical thinking and promote discussion. Some of the issues covered in this text include nuisance, reasonable care, mental injury, the duty of care, negligent misrepresentation, vicarious liability, and the negligence liability of public authorities.

Using this comprehensive coverage, readers will develop a more well-rounded understanding of the rules, judgments, and theories that impact tort law.
