|Publication Date||18 June 2019|
Andrew Burrows' landmark work Remedies for Torts, Breach of Contract, and Equitable Wrongs (formerly Remedies for Torts and Breach of Contract) has been updated and expanded to include judicial remedies for civil wrongs in English law. Since the previous edition was published in 2004, the book's area of discussion has expanded to cover many modern case examples. To name a few, important Supreme Court decisions on penalty clauses (Cavendish v Makdessi) and injunctions include Morris-Garner v One Step Ltd on negotiating damages, Milner v Carnival on quantum of mental distress damages, and Forsyth Grant v Allen on restitution for torts, to name a few (LauritzenCool, Araci v Fallon and Coventry v Lawrence).
This book includes two new chapters in addition to a full update to reflect recent legal changes. The first chapter, which is new to the fourth edition, looks at damages under the Human Rights Act of 1998, while the second looks at negotiating damages. Due to its extensive coverage, factual detail, smart use of academic context, and enduring subject matter, Andrew Burrows' Remedies for Torts, Breach of Contract, and Equitable Wrongs is a popular study among students and practitioners.
New to this Edition of Remedies for Torts, Breach of Contract, and Equitable Wrongs:
- There are two new chapters on negotiating damages and damages under the Human Rights Act 1998.
- MorrisGarner v One Step Ltd; damages for lost chances in tort (Sienkiewitz); penalty clauses (Cavendish v Makdessi); and equitable remedies for equitable wrongs (AIB Group (UK) Ltd v Mark Redler and Co) are among the Supreme Court precedents examined.
- Engages in a discussion of rights theory in academia.
