Principles of European Tort Law, Text and Commentary

The European Group on Tort Law has published its "Principles of European Tort Law", accompanied by a commentary and several translations.

A full text of the Principles and their accompanying commentary are also now available in Chinese, French and Spanish.

Following the original publication of the PETL (with commentary) in 2005, the Group reconvened in 2009 to work on expanding the PETL’s scope and updating and refining its content in the light of subsequent scholarly debates and developments in national and EU law. In the years to come, the Group aims to publish a series of preliminary studies on topics not addressed in the initial edition of the PETL or otherwise warranting consideration, culminating with the publication of a revised and expanded edition of the PETL. The Group has nearly completed the first topic, Proportional Liability, and is mid-way through its second project, State Liability. The former will be published in the Tort and Insurance Law series produced by De Gruyter (Berlin/Boston).
