This book gives a complete study of Malaysian tort law using an analytical methodology. In addition to the tort of negligence, less prevalent torts such as wrongs in the judicial process, breach of statutory duty, harassment, animal responsibility, and intentional tort to the person are all included. Other common torts, such as annoyance, occupiers' liability, defamation, and product liability, are thoroughly examined. To round out the debate, the themes of vicarious liability, remedies, and appropriate defences are thoroughly examined.
The book examines Malaysian tort law in light of recent developments in key Commonwealth jurisdictions, focusing on issues that have and have not been addressed by local appellate courts. Where local precedent is lacking, the book aims to chart a course for the future evolution of Malaysian law, led by judicial opinion and analyses of international policy matters.
The writers have used their extensive experience to rigorously analyse the law in order to produce a text that will be useful to practitioners, judges, judicial officers, scholars, and students.
