Tort Law Principles provides a concise overview of the key concepts and principles of the law of tort. Significant commentary together with supporting cases, problem and tutorial questions, flow charts and tables, all assist the student to further their understanding and assess their knowledge.

This edition has been substantially reworked and updated in all areas of tort law with specific focus on the application of the legislative reform of negligence outlined in previous editions, along with a completely re-worked chapter on defamation. The discussion of negligence now fully integrates available judicial interpretation of legislative reform as well as clear insight into the similarities and differences between the original common law and subsequent legislative reform.

Tort Law Principles takes the discussion of Tort Law one step further than other basic texts by providing two new chapters exploring the boundaries of tort law. Of significance is the chapter on defamation in the online world. This discussion provides insight into the growing impact of social media on human interaction and therefore the law.
