80 years on, Donoghue v Stevenson  AC 562 remains one of the world’s most famous delict/tort cases.
To celebrate the 80th anniversary of Lord Atkin’s judgment, there is to be an international conference on May 25 & 26, 2012. This should generate wide interest and indeed attendance from around the legal world.
The conference celebrates inter alia Lord Atkin’s immortal words:
Who then in law is my neighbour? The answer seems to be persons who are so closely and directly affected by my act that I ought reasonably to have them in contemplation as being so affected when I am directing my mind to the acts or omissions which are called in question.
Around the blawgs
