I'm revising for my upcoming Tort exam though my resources used in revision aid is considerably lacking compared to my other three modules this semester.

For the essay section I'm looking into:


  • Medical negligence
  • Property tort (nuisance),


For the Problem Question I'm looking into:


  • Occupiers liability


And another topic which may come in either section:


  • Psychiatric injury with regards to changes recommended by the law commission

I would be really grateful if anyone could offer me at least the core points of the above topics, tort law is a particular weak spot of mine and it would be most helpful if I could get at least a basic picture of these topics.

So sorry for being such a pain, I really am, but I am in dire need of assistance from the law student community.

Thank you

I do use Q&A Exam Practice books to feel more confident about facing the exam...unfortunately I have been unable to procure one on the subject of Tort Law as my university library surprisingly does not possess it despite having all others.

With the psychiatric injury bit, the obvious place to start is with the Law Commission's proposals themselves - just google them and they should be fairly quick to find, and if you're short for time you can probably just read the executive summary.

As for the rest, I'd be amazed if your university didn't have some kind of Tort textbook; they might not have the specific one you want but something is a lot better than nothing. As tehforum suggests, I'd go for McBride and Bagshaw if you can get your hands on it, as it's sophisticated but to-the-point (although I'm perhaps biased given that McBride is my director of studies), but failing that there are plenty of other good books out there - Winfield and Jolowicz is another decent option.

Failing all that there are some adequate websites out there, you could always google it
