Providing exhaustive coverage, "Jackson and Powell on Professional Liability" is the most established and authoritative work in the field of professional negligence law. It is divided into two parts: chapters covering the general law around professional negligence - the duties, remedies, defences, litigation, human rights issues - are followed by detailed chapters covering individual professions in turn.

It is a new edition of the definitive text on professional negligence.

  • It contains comprehensive analysis of case law with extensive footnotes, and examines the basis of negligence liability (such as contract, tort and fiduciary duties).
  • It explains the various remedies available, and deals with the impact of human rights issues on the professions.
  • It covers litigation issues, and goes through the law as it applies to each profession, including the duties, liabilities and damages issues for each one.
  • It includes three new chapters on Insurance, Financial Services Regulation and Actuaries.
  • It is up to date with major recent case law.
