In addition to highlighting the non-neutrality of tort law, and its personal, real-life context, this collection brings issues of social class, ‘race’, gender, marginalisation, vulnerability and harm into conversation with core tort law topics to encourage a more critical examination of the law and its impact on different groups of people. The deliberate welcoming of both diverse topics and interpretations, alongside diverse voices, is intended to help students gain and develop further critical understanding of the goals of tort, whether they are achieved (and if so, who for, and at what cost), or whether tort law serves to perpetuate existing inequalities and division. By including a wider range of voices and views within a core tort law text, we hope to uncover the power imbalances and privileges that underpin tort law decisions and their impact on lived experiences, and provide a useful resource for those seeking to engage with more critical and diverse perspectives on tort.
