Abstract

Connecting with Tort Law provides students with not only the understanding of the law of torts itself, but also the fundamentals of legal argument and problem-solving. The text is divided into two parts.
Part 1: Preparing for Success gives an overview of tort law and its challenges, and sets students up for successful study in torts. Students will learn how to analyse problem questions and torts cases, how to identify issues and structure an answer to a torts problem, and how to argue like a torts lawyer.
Part 2: The Torts puts the insights gained from Part 1 into practice as the elements of each tort are identified. This section has been thoroughly updated with new cases and references and has an increased focus on negligence, reflecting the legislative changes in this area. There are three new chapters covering negligence: Duty of Care, Breach, and Causation. In addition Chapter 9: Defamation has been updated with a specific focus on defamation in the age of social media, and Chapter 10: Introduction to Negligence also incorporates the challenges of the Digital Age.
