11. Case study

11.9. Reading and analysing potentially relevant cases




Normally, you would be required to read the full law report of each potentially relevant case to properly understand what facts the court considered to be material, and what rule of law the court applied to those facts.

However, for the purposes of this case study, it will suffice to read summaries of the cases.

Click on each of the links below for a summary of each case. Read each summary carefully.

L'Estrange v Graucob Ltd [1934] 2 KB 394

Causer v Browne [1952] VLR 1

Toll (FGCT) Pty Ltd v Alphapharm Pty Ltd (2004) 219 CLR 165

When you have read the cases, you can think about what precedent each case is laying down.
