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.
