Opis produktu

P>Completely revised and updated to take into account significant developments in Australian tort law the fifth edition of this established casebook illuminates the principles of contemporary tort law in its historical context./P>P>This casebook provides students with experience in reading and comprehending primary sources of law. To guide the student each case extract is preceded by a note that summarises the essential principles for which the extracted case is authority or identifies the key issue which the case addresses. Nearly thirty 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./P>P>In addition a number of chapters have been reorganised to reflect current trends and issues in the development of the law./P>P>The currency of the book will be maintained by the publication of edited versions of important new cases on the Federation Press website. The extracts will be accompanied by brief editorial comment and all may be freely downloaded.1. Historical Background : 2. Interference with the Person : 3. Interference with Land : 4.

This one though 480 pages long is compact and relatively light to carry. It is a far cry from the house bricks that students of old had to lug about. It is a typical example of the Federation Press style: a durable wellproduced paperback well suited to the student market./P>P>...this is good one of its kind. It extracts 134 cases mostly Australian but with a sprinkling of landmark cases from other jurisdictions...its usefulness depends on the grouping of the cases and this reflects the scholarship of the compilers. The valuable parts are the grouping of the cases the brief case notes and the tables of cases and statutes. These parts would also be of considerable value beyond the student market. Australian Law Librarian Vol 16 No 2 2008/P>P>There are two apparently contradictory aphorisms which this book brings to mind. The first is that you are never too old to learn. The second is that you cant teach an old dog new tricks. Happily this book pointed me towards the first of the two and I hope demonstrated the incorrectness of the second. the authors have very cleverly and succinctly drawn together the leading decisions The extracts from the cases contain no more than the material necessary to understand the point being made but the accompanying brief editorial comments and headnotes tie the threads together in such a way as to enhance the readers unde
