Buckley: The Law of Negligence and Nuisance

Buckley: The Law of Negligence and Nuisance

Author: R. A. Buckley Format: Hardback Release Date: 30/03/2017

The sixth edition of Buckley on Negligence and Nuisance brings the work right up to date in print and online. Part of Butterworth's Common Law Series, this title draws extensively upon recent cases and judicial pronouncements and also includes references to case law from jurisdictions outside the UK. The law of negligence touches on many areas of professional practice and remains a complex and a growing area of business for solicitors. Buckley deals with the multiple duties owed at the interface of the principles of negligence with medical and personal injury law, employment law, consumer law, licensing, and as such it is an essential addition to the library of any solicitor's firm. The book is also part of the Common Law menu which is supported by annual updates. New to this edition: * Deals with the Third Parties (Rights Against Insurers) Act 2010 coming into force at last * Limitation in clinical negligence: Chinnock v Veale Wasborough [2015] EWCA Civ 441 * Mesothelioma and insurance: International Energy Group v Zurich [2015] UKSC 33 * Police liability and human rights: DSD v Metropolitan Police Commissioner [2015] EWCA Civ 646 * Other significant High Court decisions such as: Vaughan v Ministry of Defence [2015] EWHC 1404 (liability of MoD to military personnel); Ritz Hotel Casino v Al Geabury [2015] EWHC 2294 (compulsive gambling and the duty of care); Ex p Barker [2015] EWHC 1299 (clinical negligence)

The Law of Private Nuisance

The Law of Private Nuisance

Author: Allan Beever Format: Hardback Release Date: 22/08/2013

It is said that a nuisance is an interference with the use and enjoyment of land. This definition is typically unhelpful. While a nuisance must fit this account, it is plain that not all such interferences are legal nuisances. Thus, analysis of this area of the law begins with a definition far too broad for its subject matter, forcing the analyst to find more or less arbitrary ways of cutting back on potential liability. Tort law is plagued by this kind of approach. In the law of nuisance, today's preferred method of cutting back is to employ the notion of reasonableness. No one seems to know quite what 'reasonableness' means in this context, however. This is because, in fact, it does not mean anything. The notion is no more than the immediately recognisable symptom of our inadequate comprehension of the law. This book expounds a new understanding of the law of nuisance, an understanding that presents the law in a coherent and systematic fashion. It advances a single, central suggestion: that the law of nuisance is the method that the common law utilises for prioritising property rights so that conflicts between uses of property can be resolved.
