“I am confident that [Norchaya Talib on Torts in Malaysia] will become one of the main texts on the law of torts in Malaysia and just like the earlier editions of the late Professor Norchaya Talib’s books, this edition will also benefit many readers in this country.”
Dato’ Associate Professor Dr Johan Shamsuddin bin Dato’ Haji Sabaruddin
Dean, Faculty of Law University of Malaya
Tort law is a branch of private law that safeguards individuals against civil wrongdoing. This book, which builds on the late Professor Dr Norchaya Talib's established Law of Torts in Malaysia, covers not only traditional torts like negligence, nuisance, trespass, strict liability, and defamation, but also explores modern elements of Malaysian tort law.
In the last decade, Malaysian tort law has undergone major changes. A group of experienced contributors updated and reworked the chapters to reflect those changes in this new edition of Norchaya Talib on Torts. The introduction of the tort of harassment; expanded analysis of the defence of illegality, exclusion clauses, and damages; focus on new developments in the law of defamation, altering the landscape of free speech; and consideration of the extension of vicarious liability are all addressed in this book, which follows Professor Norchaya's well-known structure. Two further chapters are included to expand on neglected topics like economic torts and privacy.
Not only students learning tort law, but also professionals researching the subject, will benefit greatly from the brief presentations of legal principles as well as extensive assessments of key judicial judgments and legislative requirements. This book will serve as the primary reference on tort law in Malaysia.
