'Push me! Pull You? Tensions in establishing negligence liability of sports instructors and coaches'

Research output: Contribution to conferenceOther

Abstract

A paper examining tensions, in principle and practice, when considering whether an instructor (along with, by extension of vicarious liability, an employer, and beyond, an insurer) must compensate an injured pupil in negligence cases. In particular, considering the imbalance of knowledge, experience and control between the parties (particularly where children are involved), the principles of personal autonomy, freedom of choice and voluntary assumption of risk, the particular characteristics of sport (including the fast-moving nature of some sports, momentary lapses of judgment, recognised professional standards and jurisdictional aspects) and causative potency.
