Butterworths Common Law Series
The new edition of Buckley: The Law of Negligence provides clear and accessible explanation and interpretation of the current law across the field of negligence. It aims to provide a fresh and critical exposition that, whilst comprehensive, gives particular emphasis to the contemporary scene. It draws upon recent cases and judicial pronouncements and includes references to case law from jurisdictions outside the UK.

Professional negligence is covered in detail as it is a rapidly growing area of law. The new edition also covers the impact of the Human Rights Act 1998.

Topics covered include: the structure of negligence liability; negligence and economic interests; professional negligence; liability arising from land use; negligence against a statutory background; nuisance; employers' liability; defective products; defences; damages and their assessment; redress for continuing interference; tort, the State and the future.
