The Duty of Care in Negligence

by James Plunkett

Part of the Hart Studies in Private Law Series

The Duty of Care in Negligence Synopsis

This book aims to provide a detailed analysis and overview of the duty of care enquiry, drawing on both academic analyses and judicial experience in leading common law systems. A new structure through which duty problems can be analysed is also proposed. It is hoped that the book provides some fresh insights and clarity of the concept to the reader.

The Duty of Care in Negligence Press Reviews

Plunkett's book will prove a valuable guide to everyone involved in this area of law as to how we should approach duty of care issues in future. -- Nick McBride, Pembroke College, University of Cambridge * The Journal of Professional Negligence * Given that the law on duty of care is highly contested and performs a normative function, it is a testament to Plunkett's writing that I found myself agreeing with most of his arguments... I cannot recommend this thoroughly researched and elegantly written monograph highly enough. -- Craig Purshouse, School of Law, University of Leeds * Modern Law Review * This book would be of interest to practitioners, academics and the judiciary alike. Clearly written and cogently argued, this book succeeds in increasing its reader's understanding of this almost mystical concept. -- Val Corbett * Tort Law and Litigation Review * The Duty of Care in Negligence provides a useful consolidation of the historical and modern evolution of duty and a thoughtful critique of some current scholarly debates. -- Erika Chamberlain, University of Western Ontario * Cambridge Law Journal *
