Library - torts

A great deal has been happening in tort litigation over recent months.  The Supreme Court has handed down several important judgments, on the duty of care, professional negligence, economic loss, and the liability of public authorities.  The Court of Appeal has been extremely busy on issues relating to the calculation of damages, occupiers’ liability, employers’ liability and defamation.  Judges of the High Court have handed down very many judgments on all aspects of practice and procedure in tort litigation as well as emerging areas of liability.  The Law School of Trinity College Dublin is holding a conference on Tort Litigation: All the Recent Developments, on the morning of Saturday, 23 June from 9.30 am to 1 pm.  The Honorable Mr. Justice Anthony Barr will be Chair.    There is a strong team of speakers and there will be opportunity for questions and discussion.  Further details are available on the conference website.
