Remedies in Australian Private Law offers a clear, logical and complete treatment of remedies in common law, equity and statute. Designed in response to the rapid expansion of interest in this field of law, it provides readers with a theoretical and practical framework for understanding the principles of private law remedies and how they are applied. Clearly structured with a strong black-letter law focus, this book includes detailed coverage of remedies for tort, breach of contract, the Australian Consumer Law and equitable obligations. It also includes discussion of theoretical perspectives on issues such as the fusion of common law and equity, the nature of reasonable fee awards and the concept of unjust enrichment. The systematic and accessible approach set out in this book will enable students and practitioners to develop an overarching conception of remedial law and thereby enhance their capacity to analyse legal problems and find the best solutions.
