The American tort system is unique in that it possesses many characteristics about which little is known in the UK or Europe. The author examines the way in which the American tort system has evolved and how it works today. The book deals with topics such as judicial activism, the jury in civil trials, the trial lawyers, the contingent fee and mass litigation. As pressure for reform of tort law in the UK grows, it is not inconceivable that some aspects of the American system will be adapted for use in the UK, so this work may be of interest to students of law and practising lawyers in this country.
