The philosophy of Connecting with Tort Law is that everyone learns best by doing - but that we often need a guide that can show us by example what to do and how to go about doing it. Connecting with Tort Law helps students to improve their analytical skills in tort law. It is divided into twoparts: Part 1 is called 'Preparing for Success' and covers an overview of tort law and its challenges. It sets students up for successful study in torts. It includes topics on legal argument, legal problem-solving and study strategies. Students will learn how to work effectively as a torts student, how toargue like a torts lawyer, how to analyse problem questions and torts cases, and how to identify issues and structure an answer to a torts problem. Part 2 - 'The Torts' provides succinct summaries of the main torts covered in undergraduate law courses, as well as defences. Throughout these chapters the skills focus is maintained, with a selection of problem-solving tips and exercises to help students apply what they have learnt and build on theskills introduced in Part 1.
Julia Davis is an Associate Professor within the School of Law at the University of South Australia.
