Provides an authoritative analytical and practical doctrinal consideration of the law relating to professional immunities in tort law. Dr Davies primarily focuses on English law with some coverage of other common law jurisdictions where cases and other materials are relevant. Professionalobligations and liabilities play an important role in tort, with a limited number of professional and occupational groups considered to benefit from some "immunity" from these. This essential text reviews the nature of immunities and considers the contexts in which the term is used before providingexamples of those "immune" professions with reference to case law and leading secondary commentary. It addresses the rationales and justifications for immunities and, more broadly, their interaction with general professional negligence and liability issues.
