Summary "[This book] 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."-- Provided by publisher
