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 fifth edition references more than 180 new cases on topics including identification of the relevant risk of injury and the operation of statutory defences relating to recreational activities and public authorities, professional negligence of lawyers, mental harm in employment and generally, intentional torts and damages for personal injury. Statutory amendments since the last addition are also noted, including the introduction of no-fault motor accident compensation in New South Wales and the legislation in some jurisdictions dealing with institutional child abuse.
