The notes are structured so as to follow the logical method in answering a problem question, going through the elements, the defences, and the remedies to a defamation claim. These detailed notes include: - Notes on the introductory bits of the course. - Detailed case summaries. - The teacher's commentary on certain points. - Red text to show the points that were really emphasised in class. - Detailed notes on the newly introduced fourth element to defamation – the SERIOUS HARM element – which was only introduced at the end of 2022. Also includes David Rolph's three step approach for dealing with serious harm in a problem question given that there is little case law guidance. - Notes on privacy. - Notes on breach of confidence.
