The law of torts hovers over virtually every activity of modern society. No enterprise, action, or profession is beyond its potential scope. Because of this, tort law is of real concern to most legal practitioners, jurists and academics. Yet while the term "torts" found its way into early English as a synonym for the word "wrong", a tort is in its essence a strictly legal construct which only exists where the law says it does.
Newly revised and thoroughly updated, Halsbury's Torts
(2012 Reissue) enumerates, defines, and explains the application of the law in Canada relating to civil wrongs. From intentional wrongs such as battery and conspiracy to nuisance, product liability and Quebec's law of delict, this valuable volume provides a black-letter narrative of the law for everyone seeking a straightforward understanding of the subject.
