Thomas Kadner Graziano con Comparative Tort Law: Cases, Materials, and Exercises
Reseña del editor Comparative Tort Law promotes a ‘learning by doing’ approach to comparative tort law and comparative methodology. Each chapter starts with a case scenario followed by questions and expertly selected material, such as: legislation, extracts of case law, soft law principles, and (where appropriate) extracts of legal doctrine. Using this material, students are invited to: • solve the proposed scenario according to the laws of several jurisdictions; • compare the approaches and solutions they have identified; • evaluate their respective pros and cons; and • reflect upon the most appropriate approach and solution. This book is essential reading for all students and scholars of comparative tort law and comparative law methodology and is the ideal companion for those wishing to both familiarise themselves with real-world materials and understand the many diverse approaches to modern tort law.
