A2 Tort Law

Candidates are expected to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the principles of the law of torts.

Candidates are expected to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the principles of the law of torts and to develop an appreciation of the nature and scope of the various torts covered in the specification and the range of interests they are designed to protect. Candidates are expected to display a critical awareness of the significance of tortious principles in the wider social context.

Candidates are required to demonstrate some synoptic thinking. This is achieved by relevant reference to precedent and/or statutory materials, including the development of law and comments on justice or morality where appropriate. It is also achieved by relevant use of precedent and/or statutory materials in the application of legal reasoning to given factual situations, including comment on the justice or morality of the outcome where appropriate.

This unit is concerned only with the law applicable in England and Wales, which includes, as far as the chosen topics of study are concerned, the impact of European Union law on domestic law and legal institutions.

Candidates will be required to support their knowledge by citation of relevant leading cases and the main provisions of relevant statutes.

While candidates are encouraged to be aware of the changing nature of law, they are not required to be familiar with innovations coming into effect in the twelve months immediately preceding the examination.
