Derived from the renowned multi-volume 'International Encyclopaedia of Laws', this book provides ready access to how the legal dimension of prevention against harm and loss allocation is treated in Ireland. This traditional branch of law not only tackles questions which concern every lawyer, whatever his legal expertise, but also concerns each person’s most fundamental rights on a worldwide scale. Following a general introduction that probes the distinction between tort and crime and the relationship between tort and contract, the monograph describes how the concepts of fault and unlawfulness, and of duty of care and negligence, are dealt with in both the legislature and the courts. The book then proceeds to cover specific cases of liability, such as professional liability, liability of public bodies, abuse of rights, injury to reputation and privacy, vicarious liability, liability of parents and teachers, liability for handicapped persons, product liability, environmental liability, and liability connected with road and traffic accidents. Principles of causation, grounds of justification, limitations on recovery, assessment of damages and compensation, and the role of private insurance and social security are all closely considered.0.

The Law of Tort Welcome to my series of pocket books in Irish Law which aimed at beginner-level readers with little or no previous experience of the Law of Tort. Torts are concerned with civil wrongs, whereby one party causes damage to another party. -Tort is the French word for a "wrong" or Latin for "twisted." -Tort is a branch of Civil Law; therefore a tort in law is called a "Civil Wrong" -Tort law protects a variety of injuries and provides remedies (ways to fix) them. Torts can be distinguished from legal wrongs: A Tort is not a breach of contract, where the obligation which is alleged to have been breached arose under an agreement between two parties. A Tort is not a crime, where the object of proceedings is to punish the offender rather than compensate the victim. Using tort law, an injured party can bring a civil case to seek compensation for a wrong done to the party (plaintiff, or injured party) or the party's property. Tort damages or compensation are monetary damages that are sought from the offending party. They are intended to compensate the injured party for the injury suffered.

Have you ever wanted to know about the law in Ireland but every time you picked up any textbooks or even articles you were completely put off by the terminology and feeling that you would have to learn a whole new language just to be able to read it, let alone understand it.? Well look no further; my books are compiled so that all of the terminology, rules and principles are explained in plain English, leaving you to enjoy learning about the law in Ireland without the headache of terminology and confounding principles. The Law of Tort A tort is a civil wrong, tort is a French word for wrong, or the Latin word (tortum or twisted), a tort occurs when a person commits a civil wrong against another person causing them damage. Tortfeasor is the person who commits the tort. Under tort law, an injured party can bring a civil case to seek compensation for a wrong done to the party or the party's property. Simply put, the law of tort is a branch of law which helps people to make a claim for compensation "usually a money payment" from another person who hurts them or their property. For instance, when one driver hurts another driver because he or she was not paying attention "negligent," the driver who caused the hurt "defendant" may have committed a tort. If a person "plaintiff" is hurt by another person "defendant" they may be able to sue them "civil litigation" and get compensation "usually money." Most torts are accidents, like car accidents or slippery floors where people can fall down and get hurt. But some torts are done on purpose. These are called intentional torts. For example, if one person punches another person, this could be an intentional tort called battery. Most torts cause physical harm to people, however, some torts cause damage to property, like a broken window "trespass to property." Some torts can harm other things, like someone's reputation or a business. "defamation"

Derived from the renowned multi-volume International Encyclopaedia of Laws, this practical analysis of sports law in Ireland deals with the regulation of sports activity by both public authorities and private sports organizations. The growing internationalization of sports inevitably increases the weight of global regulation, yet each country maintains its own distinct regime of sports law and its own national and local sports organizations. Sports law at a national or organizational level thus gains a growing relevance in comparative law. The book describes and discusses both state-created rules and autonomous self-regulation regarding the variety of economic, social, commercial, cultural, and political aspects of sports activities. Self- regulation manifests itself in the form of by-laws, and encompasses organizational provisions, disciplinary rules, and rules of play. However, the trend towards more professionalism in sports and the growing economic, social and cultural relevance of sports have prompted an increasing reliance on legal rules adopted by public authorities. This form of regulation appears in a variety of legal areas, including criminal law, labour law, commercial law, tax law, competition law, and tort law, and may vary following a particular type or sector of sport. It is in this dual and overlapping context that such much-publicized aspects as doping, sponsoring and media, and responsibility for injuries are legally measured. This monograph fills a gap in the legal literature by giving academics, practitioners, sports organizations, and policymakers access to sports law at this specific level. Lawyers representing parties with interests in Ireland will welcome this very useful guide, and academics and researchers will appreciate its value in the study of comparative sports law.

This Introduction to Irish law booklet is a handy little number, it is compiled so that the most difficult and challenging terminology, rules and principles are explained, leaving you to enjoy learning about the law in Ireland without the headache of first learning terminology and confounding principles. Torts are wrongdoings; done by one person against another. When one person wrongs another, the injured person may take civil action against the other person. In plain English, let's say while walking down the fruit and veg aisle of your local supermarket, you slip on a grape that had fallen from the shelf and injure yourself. You become the plaintiff, or injured party, and the supermarket is considered the tortfeasor or defendant, they are defined as the negligent party. When this happens you can take civil action against the supermarket to claim compensation for pain, suffering, medical bills and expenses incurred as a result of the fall. Negligence is just one tort category. This booklet will go through all of the different types. This basic introductory booklet is just that, a layman's guide, it is not meant to be an academic text book, it is merely a guide, however, saying that, many first year law students on the CPA, ATI and ACCA courses as well as year one legal proactive and LLB students find it invaluable as it introduces all the rules and principles in plain English and they can then get on with the important task of learning the terminology once they come to grasps with the principles.
