Tort law is a subject of primary importance in the study and practice of the common law in Caribbean jurisdictions. This work is now well established as the leading text on tort law in the region, and this fifth edition has been updated throughout to incorporate developments in law and legal thinking, including special contributions on medical negligence and the misuse of private information from the Hon Justice Roy Anderson and Dr Vanessa Kodilinye. The accessible writing style and integration of up-to-date material enables students to grasp the salient points and develop a thorough understanding of Tort Law in the Caribbean.
Although conceived primarily as a text for the LLB degree courses in Caribbean universities, Commonwealth Caribbean Tort Law is also essential reading for students preparing for the CAPE Law examinations and the various paralegal courses in the region. Legal practitioners will ﬁnd the book useful as a work of ready reference, and it will also be of interest to those business executives, industrialists, insurance agents and journalists who require some knowledge of this most important area of the law.
