Book Description

Commonwealth Caribbean Tort Law is well established as the leading text on tort law in the Caribbean jurisdictions, now updated in its sixth edition.

This new edition sees the addition of co-author Dr Natalie Corthésy. It introduces a brand-new chapter on the nature of personality rights, with a strong focus on passing off and suggested solutions to redress the issues. All chapters have been updated to reflect ever-changing developments in jurisprudence, legislation and legal thinking, including revisions of the special contribution on the Misuse of Private Information by Dr Vanessa Kodilinye.

Commonwealth Caribbean Tort Law is ideally suited for LLB courses in Caribbean universities and law students studying modules on Caribbean Law, as well as students undertaking the CAPE Law examinations. Legal practitioners, business executives and industrialists working on the legal aspects of these areas will also find this book useful
