These titles have been newly added to our online collection on DesLibris which is available behind the Member’s Portal:

The Law of Torts – 6th edition by Philip H. Osborne
“The sixth edition explores current trends in judicial decision-making by incorporating significant developments in the law, including a discussion of Supreme Court decisions in the areas of psychiatric injury in negligence law, the scope of the duty of care in negligent misrepresentation, and the role of intervening causes in negligence litigation. The text also discusses new initiatives in the areas of privacy, the responsibility of lawyers who refer their clients to other professionals, human trafficking, and anti-SLAPP legislation.”

International and Transnational Criminal Law – 3rd edition by Robert J. Currie and Joseph Rikhof
“This third edition updates caselaw and international practice from Canada, including substantial revisions relating to the prosecution of cross-border crimes. It also combines examinations of international courts and tribunals, transnational criminal law treaties, and recent literature to provide a unique perspective on these two international law disciplines that, while best viewed as separate, retain a common heritage and some overlapping concepts and applications.”
