This is a very practical book written very much from the point of view of a journalist who is unwillingly involved in litigation. Following the chronological sequence of a defamation action, the book moves from pre-litigation issues, limitations, apologies, multiple publications, internet defamations, companies to claims by whole classes of persons.
As well as dealing with how the different courts function, the book will also cover core issues of the new law: truth and honest opinion, privilege; fair and reasonable publication on matters of public importance and other novelties which will shortly become the defamation lawyers daily staples.
This is a rapidly changing area in which no-one - journalist, editor, lawyer or plaintiff - can afford to be out of date.
