Description: This value pack contains The New Law of Torts 3rd edition and The New Law ofTorts Case Book 3rd edition.In its third edition, The New Law of Torts continuesto question whether foundational principles and policies of torts law, reflectthe social and moral values of modern Australian society. Living up to its name,this book has been up-dated with the latest legislative and judicial developmentas well as the recent major cases, reflecting the changing nature of tortlaw.This is an essential and accessible text as it provides a clear and succinctdiscussion of the interface between the statutory regime in each jurisdictionand the common law. It comprehensively covers the law as it is applicable to thewhole of Australia. The book has clearly delineated parts, sections and topicsfor each genus of torts (trespass, action on the case, statutory wrongs, etc),and each species (battery, assault, negligence, nuisance). Headings andsub-headings provide useful breaks in the text, and selected cases are used notonly as authorities, but also as illustrations of principle and judicialreasoning.The New Law of Torts Case Book is a collection of edited cases,designed as a companion to The New Law of Torts textbook. It provides studentswith access to a carefully selected range of case extracts of seminal judgementsthat have created and shaped the modern law of torts, provides examples ofjudicial reasoning and illustrates approaches to doctrines that govern theinterpretation and construction of statutes. Cases extracted in this volumeallow the readers to form their own opinions and perspectives on themes andissues presented in the textbook.For more information on each of these titles,including the table of contents please see their individual pages:The New Law ofTorts 3rd editionThe New Law of Torts Case Book 3rd edition
