Tort and Contract Law for Paralegals, 3rd Edition
, Alex Colangelo
Tort and Contract Law for Paralegals, 3rd Edition provides a practical and up-to-date introduction to the fundamental elements of torts and contracts to Ontario paralegals. Readers will learn to determine whether a tort has been committed, a legal contract has been formed, or an existing contract has been breached.
Part I addresses major types of torts—specifically, intentional torts, negligence, strict liability, and vicarious liability. Part II examines the elements of a contract, defects, methods of discharge, breach of contract, and remedies for breach of contract.
Updated to reflect the latest case law and legislation, the third edition includes increased discussion of special classes of negligence, alternative schemes, additional contract terms, e-commerce, and more. It also features new “You Be the Judge” highlight boxes, updated fact scenarios, and case studies, that prompt students to apply their knowledge of key concepts and test their comprehension.
Supplemented with real-world examples, helpful figures, and an online component for students, this essential overview provides readers with the cohesive and applied understanding of Canadian civil law vital to the work of all practising paralegals.
