This title supplies definitive guidance on the theory, principles and practical application of the law of restitution.

  • It examines the underlying principles of unjust enrichment, and explains the various ways a right to restitution can arise.
  • It covers the theory and practical application of Mistake, Compulsion, Necessity and Ineffective Transactions.
  • It shows how the principles have been applied by the courts through detailed analysis of case law.
  • It sets out the available defences to claims for restitution.
  • It considers the implications of recent case law, including the Court of Appeal decisions in
    • R McDonald v Coys of Kensington,
    • Boake Allen Ltd v Commissioners for Revenue and Customs
    • Brennan v Bolt Burden.
It features many substantially rewritten chapters - including those on Breach of Fiduciary Relationships, Breach of Confidence and Change of Position - reflecting the rapid evolution of the law in this area.
