Abstract

This dissertation is an attempt to look at certain aspects of the law relating to causation in tort as it exists at present in English law. The vehicle chosen for this is the Principles of European Tort Law published by the European Tort Law Group and annexed to this dissertation.
The dissertation is not meant to be (and could not be within the constraints of the programme) an exhaustive treatment of causation. I have looked at the historic development of causation and in doing so have raised some of the philosophical and jurisprudential questions identified by various eminent jurists and philosophers. The review of the current state of causation revolves around the questions raised by the cases on multiple causation (Fairchild,Barker etc) The principles themselves are then reviewed against both English law and a brief look at some other European jurisdictions.
