Bill Stewart's A Casebook on Delict brings together the most important Scottish cases on delict in one comprehensive and accessible volume.
The thorough examination of central cases is supported by selective articles and commentary and endeavours to illustrate the core principles of the law of delict in a current contemporary context. The statutory appendix has been updated throughout and expanded to include the Damages (Scotland) Act 1993, the Damages Act 1996 and the Defamation Act 1996.
Building on the solid foundation of a well received and respected original, this second edition sees the author succeed in further developing a reference book that no student or professional can afford to ignore.
