Description

A clear and systematic approach to successfully tackling torts assignments and exams


The new edition of LexisNexis Questions and Answers: Torts provides valuable tools for torts study. Each chapter includes a summary of key principles, relevant cases and legislation necessary for effective revision. Where pertinent, alternative causes of action and their strengths and weaknesses are also noted. Tort law in many areas has been significantly impacted by statute, so comparative tables of the applicable provisions across Australia are provided for ease of reference. Points of statutory interpretation are noted throughout many of the summaries of key principles.

Examples of written questions with fact scenarios are included for all topics, each with a suggested answer plan, sample answer and comments on how the answer might be viewed by an examiner. Readers are provided with advice on common errors to avoid when answering questions and practical hints and tips on how to achieve higher marks.

Fully revised and updated, the fourth edition highlights recent important judicial authority on the application and interpretation of the Civil Liability Acts. Numerous additional decisions have been noted throughout the book to illustrate the operation of each area of tort law. Coverage of the general principles of negligence has been expanded into two chapters and a new chapter on Defamation has been added.
