Remedies: Commentary and Materials, 7th Edition provides comprehensive treatment of both judicial and non-judicial remedies in Australian private law. Fully updated to reflect recent developments, this casebook provides extensive coverage of common law damages for breach of contract and tort, of equitable remedies and of statutory remedies under the Australian Consumer Law. The book combines carefully selected extracts from leading cases with expert commentary. Taken together, these materials elucidate the principles relating to the assessment of all forms of damages under common law and statute as well as the judicial approaches to the grant of injunctions and other non-monetary relief.

Remedies: Commentary and Materials, 7th Edition has a new team of highly experienced authors, who have critically revised the whole text. Changes of note include:

  • an improved structure with more cross-references to assist students to understand the connections between the various remedies;
  • detailed analysis of the impact of the civil liability acts and the Australian Consumer Law integrated throughout the book;
  • the introduction and the chapters on compensatory damages, equitable compensation, specific relief and gain-based relief have been restructured and revised to include substantial new analysis and the latest cases; and
  • new sections and commentary have been introduced to the chapter on proprietary relief to reflect recent developments in the law and scholarship in the area.

Remedies: Commentary and Materials, 7th Edition provides a thorough introduction to the law of civil remedies for law students and a valuable addition to the reference collections of academics and legal practitioners.
