Contemporary Australian Tort Law is an engaging, accessible and student-friendly introduction to the law of torts in Australia. This unique text covers the foundational topics of tort law in a logical structure, covering duty of care, breaches, negligence, damages and defences, and also branching into higher-level topics such as defamation and offences in public office. Each chapter is supported by tools for self-assessment and self-reflection: review questions at the end of each subheading; case boxes that delve into important historical cases; multiple-choice questions and longer, narrative problems that challenge students to apply the principles they've learnt in the chapter to 'real world' scenarios. This print and eBook combination is an indispensable resource for law students taking their first course in tort law.
