The growth of the auditing profession has also seen a marked increase in cases involving auditors. Auditor liability has grown from a relatively obscure part of the law to one of the most active and dynamic areas of the legal field. This paper attempts to capture the gist of the auditor liability field by studying three basic areas: liability under common law to clients, liability under common law to third parties, and liability arising out of the Federal Securities Acts of 1933 and 1934.
