Product description

Law of Torts provides clear, authoritative discussion and critical analysis of the law pertaining to tort, with comprehensive coverage of all common law and statutory torts across all Australian jurisdictions.

The work covers the civil wrongs protecting intentional injury to person and property; the tort of negligence, with respect both to personal and property damage and for the recovery of purely economic loss; those torts, such as nuisance, in which neither intention nor negligence is necessarily relevant; defamation; and the economic torts which protect the intentional infringement of another's trade or business.

The fifth edition of Law of Torts has been extensively revised and updated to cover all relevant new developments in case law and legislation, including misleading and deceptive conduct under the Australian Consumer Law, the tort of misfeasance in public office the application by Australian Courts of the House of Lords decision in OBG v Allen relating to economic torts and general updating of case law providing new illustrations of the application of accepted principles.
