There will be no Law for Fun in August due to the holiday period. On 19th September 2019 I will talk through how the law of negligence has developed following the discovery of a snail in a ginger beer bottle! I will cover the constituent parts of the law of negligence and explore what duty of care we owe to who and when (including trespassers). I will explain how damages are calculated and discuss the impact of contributory negligence. I will also discuss the cross over between the civil tort of negligence and certain aspects of the criminal law.
