Goudkamp & Nolan on Contributory Negligence

James Goudkamp & Donal Nolan are publishing "Contributory Negligence  Principles and Practice" from OUP.  The blurb provides:

Despite the centrality of the contributory negligence doctrine in practice, very little is known about how it functions in reality. This volume provides legal practitioners with a ‘one-stop-shop’ where they can find clear and succinct exposition of the legal principles governing contributory negligence alongside an empirically informed analysis of the way doctrine operates in various recurrent factual scenarios, based on cases decided between 1998 and 2017.

For each of the given recurring acts of contributory negligence, the average discount, the range of discounts, and the distribution of discounts are reported. These statistics are supplemented by way of illustrations drawn from the case law. Short summaries of typical cases for the relevant act of contributory negligence are given, along with summaries of cases that fall towards the higher and lower ends of the range of discounts.

A 30% discount is available with this flyer:  Download Goudkamp and Nolan Contributory Negligence (Oct 18)
