Written by respected experts, The Law of Torts in Australia remains the book to turn to for in-depth discussion of the issues of this large area of the law. Now in its fifth edition, this book explores the motivations and complexities of tort law from a distinctively Australian perspective.

Publisher Description

The aim of the fifth edition of The Law of Torts in Australia, like that of the previous four, is to provide a distinctively Australian account of the most important parts of tort law, primarily for use by students. This edition is the most comprehensive offering; it goes into more depth than other texts, and explores motivations and complexities behind the principles of tort law, whilst challenging students to think critically about the law.
