"...it aids the practitioner or researcher in finding quickly what is sought. The book's straightforward layout makes the location of the pertinent sections, as well as the relevant cases and articles, simple. The section by section approach, rather than a broader scope, enables the reader to find the precise information she requires without having to trawl through a volume of material." Aoife O'Donoghue, Judicial Studies Institute Journal of the 3rd Edition The fourth edition of The Civil Liability Acts lets you have the full up-to-date text of both the 1961 and 1964 Acts at your fingertips. It includes all the amendments, adaptations and repeals, meaning that you have the law as it currently stands - saving invaluable time searching for the latest amending piece of legislation, such as the Defamation Act 2009 and the Civil Law (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 2011. Annotated section-by-section with reference to significant Irish, English and international case law Recent cases include Anderson v Cooke (2005), Keane v Western Health Board (2007), Hussey v Twomey (2009), McGuinness v Marine Institute (2009), Prendergast v McLoughlin (2009) and Ibidunni v Boston Scientific (2010). Besides addressing unreported case law, the author also makes substantial reference to articles and published texts in the area of civil liability. It is a definitive statement of the present state of law with explanation, commentary and practical examples. It offers guidance on law and the practicalities of Civil Liability in one reference point, which is invaluable to both students and legal practitioners. The author outlines the history of the statute to date with helpful insights from both academic commentators and the Dail debates. The author presents a comprehensive examination of key areas, such as: * Contributory negligence * The ex turpi causa doctrine * Third-party procedure * Survival of causes of action on death All of these specific areas are discussed with a detailed examination of Irish case law and laws in other jurisdictions, such as England, Northern Ireland, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. 3 Good Reasons to Order the 4th Edition Today 1.
