Mark Davies 

  • The first specialist and authoritative guide to professional immunities A single source for comprehensive coverage of the concept and history of immunities 
  • Provides examples of those professions considered immune with reference to relevant case law 
  • Clearly laid out to help for quick and accurate analysis 
  • Provides an authoritative analytical and practical doctrinal consideration of the law relating to professional immunities in tort law. 
Dr Davies primarily focuses on English law with some coverage of other common law jurisdictions where cases and other materials are relevant. Professional obligations and liabilities play an important role in tort, with a limited number of professional and occupational groups considered to benefit from some 'immunity' from these. 

This essential text reviews the nature of immunities and considers the contexts in which the term is used before providing examples of those 'immune' professions with reference to case law and leading secondary commentary. It addresses the rationales and justifications for immunities and, more broadly, their interaction with general professional negligence and liability issues. 

Readership: Solicitors and barristers specialising in professional liability and negligence seeking specialist coverage of this area of law. Academics, postgraduate and undergraduates researching or studying tort law and other subjects relevant to professional liability.

Dr Mark Davies is a Senior Lecturer at the University of Sussex where he is convenor for the Law of Tort, Professional Negligence and Liability, Ethics and Conduct of Lawyers courses.
