Restitution - The Future



Recent decisions of the High Court have made it imperative that any lawyer practising commercial law become familiar with the terms ’restitution’ and ’unjust enrichment’.
Professor Birks is now recognized ... as one of the leading English common law exponents of the law of restitution ... [his] discussions of these issues are clear, precise and thorough ... As the recent decisions of the highest courts in Australia and England indicate, one ignores his views at one peril. - Balance, August 1993
