Principles of Irish Torts is designed to meet the needs of students of this increasingly demanding and complex subject.Torts is a core subject on all undergraduate law courses, and it must be passed for entrance to professional practice training courses in Ireland.
With the escalation of civil litigation in the State over the past twenty years, the body of material it encompasses is now weighty, making timely study or re-acquaintance with the subject more onerous than before. With this in mind, Principles of Irish Torts communicates the breadth of its subject with less of its girth.
The book is dedicated to essential elements and themes, and to contrasts between the torts with a view to their proper application to the circumstances of problems and cases. This book achieves its objectives with a deftness of touch and eloquence of exposition that has characterised Mr. Healy’s previous works, navigating its reader through the many intricacies, distinctions, and concepts that figure throughout torts law.
Principles of Irish Torts will be invaluable to students and lawyers, whether by introduction or re-acquaintance, and will undoubtedly become a leading authority for students who require a comprehensive yet accessible text for the study of Torts.
