Everything you need to know about the Scots Law of Delict and how it interacts with international law Recognising the multi-faceted nature of the Scots law of delict, Francis McManus and Eleanor Russell have produced a truly comprehensive guide to the law. With numerous case studies and questions for discussion after each chapter, this is essential reading for all students encountering delict for the first time as well as practitioners who require a ready reference for their practice. The Scots law of delict encompasses a vast array of legal sources and contradictions. Many elements are modern and highly developed while others remain ancient and obscure. The majority of delictual principles are case law driven yet, increasingly, legislation plays a part. Further, although the concept of delict is limited to the Scottish jurisdiction, private international law cannot be ignored.
