Course Description

This second course in the law of torts builds upon the knowledge and skills acquired by students in Torts A (LAWS11063) and covers the remainder of the topics, concepts and principles in Australian tort law. Students will gain an understanding of civil wrongs as developed by the common law yet increasingly supplemented by legislation. The course has a three-part structure. The first part examines the tort of negligence at common law and as amended by legislation Australia-wide in 2002-2003. The second part of the course examines the tort of defamation including modifications by the Defamation Act 2005 (Qld), defences and remedies. Finally, the course considers the protection available in tort from unfair business practices and defective goods and services, with a brief consideration of the Australian Consumer Law as a form of additional or alternative statutory protection in regards to these practices. 

On successful completion of this course, you will be able to:
  1. Use clear and appropriate legal terminology and style to demonstrate an understanding of the relevant concepts, principles
    and doctrines with respect to defamation, negligence, unfair business practices and defective goods and services as located
    in the leading cases and statute.
  2. Evaluate the instrumental effectiveness and fairness of the applicable rules as adhered to in practice, by critical application of
    the tort theory surveyed in Torts A.
  3. Demonstrate competency in practical legal reasoning and statutory interpretation; define, apply and critically evaluate the
    relevant area of tort law to a practical problem situation including identifying the obligations, rights and possible remedies
    available both at common law and under statute.
  4. Undertake and effectively communicate competent legal research of primary and secondary source material on tort law topics.
