The sixth volume in the Oxford Law Colloquium Series analyses the workings of, and problems associated with, commercial remedies. The book adopts the format of a collection of essays by leading academics, each with a response from a practitioner offering an insight into how the different elements of this subject are dealt with in practice. Beginning with a discussion of compensatory damages, the first Part then turns to limitations on compensation, and concludes with a re-evaluation of the SAAMCO principle. The second Part examines restitution and punishment, with particular focus on proprietary restitution for unjust enrichment and the restitution of profits made by a breach of contract. The final Part looks at how the law on agreed remedies might develop, analyses the impact of the Human Rights Act 1993 on litigation between private parties, and concludes with a consideration of commercial remedies in the conflict of laws. This is a highly topical area of law and Commercial Remedies makes a significant contribution to the debate.
