ALM’s Law Journal Press Publishes New Resource on California Premises Liability Law

NEW YORK – January 12, 2015 – ALM’s Law Journal Press, a leading publisher of traditional and online titles, eBooks, treatises and legal forms, today announced its newest release for attorneys, California Premises Liability Law. Available as an eBook and online resource, California Premises Liability compiles and examines theories and defenses that seek to challenge traditional notions of what constitutes premises. It contains hyperlinks to the full text of cases, statutes and other authoritative content.

The new resource considers issues such as the nature of a hazard on land, how a duty can arise, who is a proper plaintiff and defendant, and how far off the property liability can reach. Comprehensive in its coverage of California law, the book also provides state comparisons on significant topics relating to premises liability, such as assumption of the risk and available damages, and identifies national trends like “take-home” exposure claims.

The author of California Premises Liability Law is Jayme C. Long, a trial attorney in the Los Angeles office of McKenna Long & Aldridge. Long’s practice is concentrated in litigation with a primary focus on toxic torts, premises liability and product liability. She represents companies in the petrochemical, construction, environmental safety, maritime and automotive industries.

Specific topics covered include the following:
• Duty Owed by Landowner, Possessor or Controller
• Interest in the Land
• Hazards on Land
• Persons Hired to Work on the Land
• Liability to Persons Outside the Land
• Special Circumstances
• Common Defenses
• Damages
• Alternative Theories
