Synopsis

The law of civil wrongs, known as torts, sets the standards of behaviour between members of society. The aim of this course is to introduce students to the theoretical basis on which the law of tort in general has developed and, in particular, the tort of negligence. Students will gain an understanding of the circumstances in which an action for the tort of negligence may lie, the elements of the cause of action, the remedies available and possible defences to the action.
