Unlike many other core areas of law that students are required to study in their degree, the law of torts consists of a number of distinct civil wrongs. It is for this reason that defining exactly what amounts to a tort has proved difficult. Many commentators prefer to define torts in the negative, by comparing and distinguishing torts from other actions with similar features, such as contract law and criminal law. Others prefer to define torts by considering the types of interests the law of torts seeks to protect. In general terms, torts law provides a right to compensation where one person wrongfully breaches a duty or obligation that has been imposed by the law (rather than the parties themselves) for the protection of another.
