The purpose and doctrinal structure of private law remedies has undergone fundamental questioning over the last 25 years. This Research Handbook comprehensively and authoritatively reviews the contemporary challenges in research regarding remedies in private law.
The Research Handbook on Remedies in Private Law focuses on the most important issues throughout contract, equity, restitution and tort law as they have arisen in the major common law jurisdictions, touching upon those of other jurisdictions where pertinent. Leading contributors from across the globe thoroughly analyse the steps taken to improve the clarity and functioning of the law and examine additions to the law's difficulties.
Providing a uniquely in-depth engagement with the doctrine and theory of the topic, this Research Handbook will be of great interest to academics and students working and studying contract, equity, restitution or tort law, as well as practising lawyers in the field.
'An excellent resource both for accomplished experts and those who seek an introduction to the field of private law remedies. The book covers many important issues, including the relationship between rights and remedies, the purposes of various remedies, contractual remedies in comparative perspective, and specific issues relevant to remedies law in practice.'
