Description

We have looked again at the arrangement of chapters for this edition and, with a degree of reluctance, decided on some further change. “Reluctance” because lawyers tend to be a conservative profession and there is some comfort in finding the same topic dealt with in the same chapter of a familiar textbook from year to year. Even so, the law moves on and so must we. In particular there has been a striking development of the law of vicarious liability over recent times which the text should reflect. That subject was felt to merit its own chapter, which Stephen Todd has provided, including much new material and deleting references that had become of historical interest only. Stephen has also provided new writing in the Illegality section of the Defences chapter and revised Chapters 2 and 7. Richard Hyde has revised Parties, most of the Defences chapter, Proof and Damages, Product Liability and Death. RALE Mark Armitage has brought up to date the chapters on Professional Negligence, Employers’ Liability, Breach of Statutory Duty and Insurance. Roger Cooper has taken on Highways and Dangerous Things. Philip Kramer has dealt with Occupiers’ Liability and Animals. The careful reader will be able to work out the small portion that has fallen to the writer.
