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.
