The sixth edition of Cases on Torts has been updated to take into account significant developments in Australian tort law in recent years. This established casebook is a valuable resource of the principles of contemporary tort law in its historical context. It is intended to provide students with a resource to develop the essential legal skills of reading and comprehending primary sources of law, rather than always relying on secondary commentary or summaries. To guide the student, each case extract is preceded by a short note setting out the essential principle for which the case is authority and/or asking the student to consider a key issue which the case addresses or leaves undecided.Many new extracts have been included in this edition, comprising significant new cases and new comments, as well as some classic and foundational English and American torts cases with which every torts lawyer should be familiar.The currency of the book will be maintained by the publication of edited extracts of important new cases on The Federation Press website. The extracts will be accompanied by brief editorial comment and all may be freely downloaded.

Landmark Cases in the Law of Tort

Landmark Cases in the Law of Tort

This collection shows how important it is, despite the constant temptation to compression, not to lose sight of the contexts and nuances which qualify and illuminate so many leading authorities.

Landmark Cases in the Law of Tort contains thirteen original essays on leading tort cases, ranging from the early nineteenth century to the present day. It is the third volume in a series of collected essays on landmark cases (the previous two volumes having dealt with restitution and contract). The cases examined raise a broad range of important issues across the law of tort, including such diverse areas as acts of state and public nuisance, as well as central questions relating to the tort of negligence. Several of the essays place cases in their historical context in ways that change our understanding of the case's significance. Sometimes the focus is on drawing out previously neglected aspects of cases which have been – undeservedly – assigned minor importance. Other essays explore the judicial methodologies and techniques that worked to shape leading principles of tort law. So much of tort law turns on cases, and there are so many cases, that all but the most recent decisions have a tendency to become reduced to terse propositions of law, so as to keep the subject manageable. This collection shows how important it is, despite the constant temptation to compression, not to lose sight of the contexts and nuances which qualify and illuminate so many leading authorities.

The Advanced Torts casebook is designed for courses on the major tort law subjects that are not included in the basic first-year tort courses. The popularity and consistent use of this casebook reflect the fact that the book is unique in its in-depth coverage of advanced torts subjects, which are now the principal growth areas of tort law. Subjects covered in Advanced Torts include defamation, the rights of privacy and publicity, harm to family relationships, wrongful birth, malicious prosecution, abuse of process, interference with common law civil rights, liability for economic loss, interference with contracts, interference with business relations, unfair competition, common law rights to literary and commercial creations and ideas, trade secrets, and other economic torts including injurious falsehood.The third edition maintains the casebook's clear organization and rich range of cases from not only the United States, but also England, Canada, Australia and other common law legal systems—cases selected as the most valuable for instructional purposes as well as for their influence in shaping tort law. New cases and notes, addressing such developing areas as liability for defamation in Internet communications, bring the material fully up-to-date. The casebook has ample material for courses and seminars on economic torts (business torts) or defamation and privacy (tort law and the communications media).
