Education and the Law, 9(1) pp. 5–12.
Full text available as:
There has recently been a significant spate of cases of educational institutions being sued by dissatisfied students. For decades there was an established arena of professional negligence litigation into which physicians and even lawyers were dragged as defendants (and sometimes ruined), but where, hitherto, teachers and lecturers have hardly ever been summoned.

This article gives a critical analysis of the emerging litigational phenomenon.
