Book cover

The Law of Torts in Australia (5th edition)

Author(s): Peter Cane, Kit Barker, Mark Lunney, Francis Trindade

The Law of Torts in Australia, Fifth Edition, remains the book to turn to for authoritative and comprehensive discussion of tort law from a distinctively Australian perspective. The content of this new edition has been restructured and navigation improved to make this a more student-friendly text. It includes discussion of the major amendment of the Trade Practices Act 1974, which produced the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 and the Australian Consumer Law.  There are also separate chapters on duty of care in negligence, and causation and remoteness of damage have been reinstated, and the discussion of economic loss in the duty of care chapter has been radically reorganised and significantly rewritten.
