Emerging Issues in Tort Law

Edited by: Jason Neyers, Stephen Pitel, Erika Chamberlain

In this book, articles by leading tort scholars from the US, the UK, Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, Israel, and New Zealand deal with important theoretical and practical issues that are emerging in the law of torts. The articles analyze recent leading developments in areas such as economic negligence, causation, vicarious liability, non-delegable duty, breach of statutory duty, intentional torts, damages, and tort law in the family. They provide a foretaste of the issues that will face tort law in the near future and offer critical viewpoints that should not go unheeded.
