Rediscovering a masterpiece is a pleasure awaiting readers of this newly updated edition of Fleming’s The Law of Torts, last published in 1998. Used by generations of Judges, Lawyers and Academics, this new edition involved an outstanding author team of distinguished torts scholars.
Major new developments include the impact of tort reform processes; the impact of human rights instruments on tort law; the contraction of liability, with the impact of civil liability legislation with its emphasis on personal autonomy; the new consumer law legislation; and the new uniform defamation code.
The key strength of Fleming’s The Law of Torts, 10th ed is its examination, and elucidation, of legal principle. This text is known for its distillation of the essence of tort legal principles and its critical evaluation of them.
Professor Fleming had an unflinching belief that no legal system is superior to any other. He combed the corners of the common law and civil law world in the search for answers. The new edition continues John Fleming’s breadth of vision.
The authors of the new edition preserve Professor Fleming’s scholarship while contributing their own insight. The result is clearly outstanding. This new edition is the must-have resource for all practitioners and scholars of tort law within the common law jurisdictions.
