The issues essential to each profession are discussed, such as:

  • duties owed to clients and third parties (in statute and in general law);
  • standard of care and skill required;
  • principles of liability;
  • liability for breach of duty;
  • defences available; and
  • damages and other remedies.

New developments incorporated in the Third Edition include:

  • a significantly increased number of superior court decisions concerning provisions of the civil liability Acts, relevant to professional liability claims;
  • the impact of proportionate liability schemes on professional liability claims;
  • the introduction of the Legal Profession Uniform Law;
  • the introduction of the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law;
  • the introduction of the Australian Consumer Law;
  • fresh coverage of all aspects of the liability of financial services professionals; and
