Author(s): Fozia Nazir Lone
Publication Date: 15 August 2013
It provides an in-depth discussion of significant concepts of tort law which include negligence, nuisance, employer's liability, occupier's liability, the Rylands v Fletcher rule, economic torts, defamation, trespass, defences, damages and remedies. This work considers the impact of case law from other common law jurisdictions such as the UK, US, and Australia, in Hong Kong.
Throughout the text, questions of practical importance are raised to encourage critical thinking and to train the reader in the application of tort law. This book is the first in Hong Kong to incorporate 'discovery-based innovative teaching pedagogy' and utilises critical thinking exercises that stimulate active discussion and the consideration of real-world issues.
Case studies, explanations of principle-making and the exposition of recent case law further ensure that readers are clear about the current position of the law. Each chapter illustrates how ordinances are connected in the Hong Kong tort law system.
The book will benefit those seeking to approach the study of tort law.
