Pre-requisite or Co-requisite: LAW1111 and LAW1112
This is a core course in the Bachelor of Laws program. Together with LAW1113 Contract and Torts A, it is approved by the Legal Practitioners Admissions Board (Qld) and the Chief Justice of Queensland as meeting the torts area of knowledge under the Supreme Court (Admission) Rules 2004 (Qld) and therefore deals with elements of Torts, specifically: negligence, including defences; a representative range of torts (other than negligence) and their defences; damages; concurrent liability; and compensation schemes
This course builds upon the principles of the law of torts gained in LAW1113 Contract and Torts A. Students will study negligence and a representative range of torts, with some consideration of defences and damages, and of alternative methods of providing compensation for accidental injury. Examples include: concurrent liability, defamation, nuisance, trespass to land and compensation schemes.
