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.

The second edition has been significantly revised and offers up-to-date coverage of case law and legislation, including the Australian Consumer Law. It builds on the detailed treatment of remedies and their broad functions across a range of private law categories, including torts, contract, equity, trusts and property law. It also offers expanded coverage of vindicatory damages, debt, specific restitution and coercive remedies. Theoretical perspectives on issues such as equitable obligations, the fusion of common law and equity, the nature of reasonable fee awards and the concept of unjust enrichment are also discussed.

With it systematic and accessible approach, this text will enables students and practitioners to develop a coherent understanding of remedial law and develop the skills to analyse legal problems and identify appropriate remedial solutions.
