Description

Made these LAWS1012 notes throughout the semester from the lectures, tutorials, case book AND the assigned chapters of Balkin & Davis' textbook on torts.

This includes the summaries and ratios for all of the prescribed cases. I have uploaded the whole file (163 pages) for reference throughout the semester (eg. for assignments and presentations), however I only used the highlighted points for study for the final.

The sample provided is only part of the notes taken for one topic.

Even though these notes were made last year, the topics covered are still the same in lectures currently. The topics are as follows:

Introduction
The Legal and Social Context of Tort Law
Historical background
Trespass to the Person
Action on the Case for Wilful Injury
Damages for Intentional Torts to the Person
Trespass to Land and Airspace
Nuisance and a Tort for the Invasion of Privacy?

Negligence: Duties to Avoid Psychiatric Injury
Breach of Duty
Standard of Care in Negligence
Damage in Personal Injury Cases: Causation, Scope and Remoteness
