Description

The second edition of Remedies in Australian Private Law offers readers a clear and detailed introduction to remedies and their functions under Australian law. Clearly structured, with a strong black-letter law focus, the text provides a complete treatment of remedies in common law, equity and statute and develops a framework for understanding the principles of private law remedies and their practical application. This edition has been significantly revised and offers up-to-date coverage of case law and legislation, including the Australian Consumer Law. Building on the detailed treatment of remedies and their broad functions across a range of private law categories, the new edition also offers expanded coverage of vindicatory damages, debt, specific restitution and coercive remedies. With its systematic and accessible approach, this text enables students and practitioners to develop a coherent understanding of remedial law, and to analyse legal problems and identify appropriate remedial solutions.
