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.

This edition provides extended coverage of statutory defences to negligence, while doctrines relating to the scope of liability are now discussed together with factual causation in one chapter. Current issues in tort law reform are examined and additional references to academic writings are provided. New cases include:

  • Alcan Gove Pty Ltd v Zabic (time at which exposure to asbestos leads to actionable damage)
  • 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)
  • Swick Nominees Pty Ltd v Leroi International Inc (No 2) (pure economic loss)
  • Wallace v Kam (scope of liability)
