Understanding the Law of Obligations

By Andrew Burrows

Through these studies on cont5ractr tort and restitution, Andrew Burrows provides a stimulating guide to the present shape and likely future development of the law of obligations.Having argued that one should distinguish contract, tort and restitution, while recognising concurrent liability between them, Burrows goes on to map out the law restitution and to annalyse the future direction of that newly-recognise subject. Tort is then defended against those who would seekk to abolish much of it. Looking through the eyes of the Law Commissioner charged with responsibility for recommending improvements to the law of obligations, the collection of essays is rounded off with a view of the main reforms needed in this central area of civil justice.
