Now in its thirteenth edition and part of the prestigious Common Law Library, Gatley on Libel and Slander has established itself as the definitive work on defamation law and practice.
This new edition comes at a key time. The work has been comprehensively updated and restructured to provide a thorough examination of the Supreme Court decision in Lachaux v Independent Print Ltd – a landmark defamation case addressing the definition of “serious harm” in the Defamation Act 2013.
In addition to providing detailed commentary and expert analysis of the substantive law, it offers comprehensive guidance on the procedural aspects of bringing an action. This advice is complemented with example forms and precedents for issuing proceedings and summaries of key damages awards, making it both a practical and authoritative reference.
