Torts: Cases and Commentary delivers a critical and analytical approach to the law of torts presented through extensive commentary and selected materials from cases, legislation and academic writings. Detailed notes explain the significance of the key cases while questions stimulate critical thinking and learning.

Current issues in tort law reform are examined and additional references to academic writings are provided. New cases include:

  • Allen v Chadwick (contributory negligence)

  • Hunter and New England Local Health District v McKenna (duty of care owed by a provider of mental health services)

  • Marsh v Baxter (nuisance)

  • Prince Alfred College Inc v ADC (vicarious liability)
