This is a comprehensive set of notes for the 70311 Torts. These are the ones I used in the exam to get 56/60 despite not even finishing the exam!

They contain example ‘sentences’ and paragraphs that an examiner would be expected to see. This style of writing should be emulated for best results.
Each of the elements account for every assessable factor that may be present during the problem questions for the Exam. I would recommend printing them 2 pages to a side on paper to bring into the exam after getting to know these notes well.
