This book is the first in Hong Kong to incorporate 'discovery-based innovative teaching pedagogy' and utilises critical thinking exercises that stimulate active discussion and the consideration of real-world issues.
Case studies, explanations of principle-making and the exposition of recent case law further ensure that readers are clear about the current position of the law. Each chapter illustrates how ordinances are connected in the Hong Kong tort law system.
The book will benefit those seeking to approach the study of tort law.
