Tort law: the origin, evolution and modern tendencies
Jurisprudence
(Bachelor’s programme)
2016
The following final research work was written on the topic “Tort law: the origin, evolution and modern tendencies”. That area for the research was chosen not accidentally. Even though, the sphere of tort law is very extensive, it is still impossible to find a complex and up-to-date Russian research on the issue. The following fact gave inspiration and motivation to the author in order to explore tort law as a whole.

First, the origins and evolution of tort law was explored. The author has analyzed the roots of this unique legal invention in order to uncover the complicated structure and exceptional features of tort law.

Second, the author studied the expansion of English tort law in other common law countries and, consequently, observed how differently it has been developing there over time. To conduct the research, we chose three biggest former colonies of Great Britain: Australia, India, and the United States of America. It was extremely fascinating to observe, how classical English concepts have been changing under the various causes (social, religious, political, etc.) in different parts of the world. We will provide an interpretation, explaining which country has gained the most successful experience, and will also discuss how tort law worked before and is operating nowadays in the countries of the research.

Third, the author paid a considerable attention to the modern Tort law, as well as to the perspectives of its development, explaining the two major tort hot-topics: “tort reform” campaign in the USA and movement towards unification of the European tort law in the European Union.

Moreover, it is crucial to point out that the author believes that the main objectives of the following work were successfully reached and a very complex topic was precisely explored. A significant amount of both modern and old (sometimes ancient) foreign sources has been analyzed in order to comply with the difficulty of work.
