Summary

The relationship between tort and crime deserves serious study. The two areas of law are vital to the everyday activity of courts, lawyers and laypeople, across almost all jurisdictions. The fact patterns to be regulated by each significantly overlap, as can the names and content of the rules used to do so. Despite its practical importance and conceptual significance the area is understudied and, in England in particular, incredibly complicated. This chapter explores some of the ideas, concepts and terminology that might be used to understand the relationship, and to compare it across multiple countries. It might be thought of as providing some of the grammar and vocabulary for the three Parts of the book which follow.
