Tort Law Review, The (Tort L Rev)
About the Journal
The Tort Law Review (ISSN: 1039-3285) is an indispensable publication that will keep you abreast of the developing nature of tort law in Australia and overseas. Each issue will provide you with discussion on the current state of, and likely future changes to, the law of torts by courts, practitioners and academics in other countries.
This is the only publication of its kind to give you global coverage on torts. It also provides commentary on other legal topics such as contract, conflict of laws and unjust enrichment to help you understand the impact these areas may have on the law of torts.
