This important book explores the law relating to limitation of actions in civil cases throughout all Australian jurisdictions. The fully revised second edition also includes a new section on Defamation to take into account the uniform defamation laws passed in 2005 and 2006. The Personal Injury section has also been extensively re-written and re-structured for a specific and unique discussion of each Australian jurisdiction.

This book offers practitioners an explanatory discussion of the relevant statutory rules and case law in a functional format. The multi-jurisdictional exploration of the principles also aids practitioners who are conducting cases in other jurisdictions and provides a useful comparison of how various jurisdictions govern limitation of actions.

Also included is a fully updated Table of Limitation of Actions, a handy at-a-glance reference to key legislative provisions and general limitation periods for all States and Territories, organised by reference to causes of action.
