Adopting an analytical approach, this book presents a comprehensive coverage of tort law in Malaysia. Besides the tort of negligence which takes central focus, less common torts like wrongs in relation to legal process, breach of statutory duty, harassment, liability for animals and intentional tort to the person are given due coverage. Other popular areas of tort like nuisance, occupiers’ liability, defamation and product liability are provided careful consideration. The topics of vicarious liability, remedies and applicable defences are explored in depth to complete the discussion in this book.
The book endeavours to consider Malaysian tort law in light of development in major Commonwealth jurisdictions, covering matters that have and have not been considered by local appellate courts. Where specific issues are not covered by local precedent, the book attempts to point the way forward for the future development of Malaysian law, guided by judicial opinion and discussions of policy considerations overseas. 
The authors have drawn on their deep experience to meticulously analyse the law to prepare a text that will benefit practitioners, judges, judicial officers, academics and students.
