IS IT A LAW OF TORT OR LAW OF TORTS: PIGEON-HOLE THEORY VS. WINFIELDS THEORY
AbstractThe Judge made law is traceable to Anglo-Saxon times which forms the basis of English law enduring for over 900 years. The following discussion note ferrets the results of a thorough assessment of the highly diverse phenomena of law of tort, organized into a two dimensional analysis i.e. Is it a law of Tort or Is it a law of Torts, including a reference to various Specific torts. The disputes which fall within the bounds of tort law are as broad as the range of human activities itself. Every person whose action or inaction precipitates a result which another perceives as harmful is a potential tortfeasor. New torts and new class of tort actions are constantly being recognized as ideas change concerning the duties persons owe to one another. So it will be better to call it law of Tort, which is ferreted within the framework of this article.
