Rationalising omissions liability in negligence

Abstract:
Reflects on how the general rule of no liability in negligence for pure omissions is to be understood. Examines exceptions to the general rule, including assumptions of responsibility, and suggests a revised rule recognising that some acts merit the same treatment as omissions, based on whether the conduct of defendants makes a victim worse off. Considers whether the current exceptions are consistent with the justifications for the general rule.
