Furthermore, this book explores the reasons for the rise of unjust factors in South African law, attributing this development in part to the influence of the Roman-Dutch restitutio in integrum, an extraordinary, equitable remedy that has historically operated independently of the established enrichment remedies of the civilian tradition, and.

BOOK EXCERPT: Barely 10 years old and growing rapidly, the doctrine of unjust enrichment offers splendid rewards to those who understand it and grave dangers to those who do not. This short book explains clearly and concisely the uses and dangers of the doctrine. Davenport, author of the very successful Construction Claims, and Harris draw. ‘Unjust enrichment’ was in danger of becoming a core area of direct payments, surrounded by an increas-ingly sorry-looking periphery of misfit liabilities. What should have been even more worrying was the increasingly complex language apparently required by the theory of unjust enrichment, not to mention the rate at which it changed.

Unjust enrichment to corrective justice, and another to provide an adequate theoretical account of the connection. Such an account must show how liability for unjust enrichment manifests the three interwoven features that make up corrective justice. First, corrective justice, reflecting the bipolar.

This new edition is a fully updated, clear and concise account of the law of unjust enrichment, and attempts to move away from the usage of obscure terminology inherited from the past.

It organises modern law around five simple questions: Was the defendant enriched. If so, was it at the claimant's expense. If so, was it unjust.

The fourth question is then what kind of right the claimant has. Barely 10 years old and growing rapidly, the doctrine of unjust enrichment offers splendid rewards to those who understand it and grave dangers to those who do not.

This short book explains clearly and concisely the uses and dangers of the doctrine. Davenport, author of the very successful Construction Claims, and Harris draw primarily upon examples in construction law, where unjust enrichment. In law, gains, like losses, don’t always lie where they fall.

The circumstances in which the law requires defendants to give up their gains are well documented in the work of unjust enrichment lawyers. The same cannot be said, however, of the reasons for ordering restitution of such gains. It is often suggested that unjust enrichment’s existence can be demonstrated without inquiry into.

book enrichment.2/5(1). Introduction. In a literature review in this journal ten years ago, 1 I observed that, whilst analytical thinking about unjust enrichment law had reached something of a consensus in England, its reach in helping us to understand and predict the future shape of the subject was limited.

A stable technique for analysing claims was a precondition of the law’s coherent development, but was. The concept of Unjust Enrichment has been explained in various different books in different terms and in brief it means that when a person takes benefit from other person and does not gives anything in return i.e.

Defences in Unjust Enrichment, Book Review — Yotam Kaplan. Post by Yotam Kaplan, Private Law Fellow, Harvard Law School the questions discussed by Scott and the other contributors, following the framework suggested by the editors, go to the very core of unjust enrichment theory, and pose some fundamental conceptual questions.

An asset previously held by the claimant passes into the hands of the defendant, and the claimant's consent to its passing is either defective or wholly absent. But why exactly is a claim triggered on these facts. Unjust enrichment does a poor job of explaining why the law should.

This chapter begins with an analysis of the concept of value, and claims that it is incoherent to say that to own property is to own the value of it, for value is realised by the actions of the owner; it is not something an owner possesses.

It therefore follows that value can neither be exchanged or transferred, and any theory which attempts to explain unjust enrichment using the idea of a. To recover under an unjust enrichment theory, the following elements must be proven: 1) lack of an adequate remedy at law; 2) a benefit conferred upon the defendant by the plaintiff coupled with the defendant’s appreciation of the benefit (i.e., an “enrichment”); and 3) acceptance and retention of the benefit under circumstances that make.

The essays consider the central questions raised by demarcating unjust enrichment as a separate area of private law - including how its normative foundations relate to those of other areas of private law, how the concept of enrichment relates to property theory, how the remedy of restitution relates to principles of corrective justice and what.

There are two principal accounts of the normative foundations of unjust enrichment. The first holds that the plaintiff's right to restitution for unjust enrichment is a claim in corrective justice.

The second holds that the plaintiff's right vindicates a set of values to which our legal system is committed. This chapter unpacks what is at issue in the debate between these two accounts, and the. In law, gains, like losses, don't always lie where they fall. That there exists a body of law dealing with liability for gains is now settled and the circumstances in which the law requires defendants to give up their gains are well documented in the work of unjust enrichment lawyers."10 Unjust Enrichment" published on by Oxford University Press.

Topics covered include the politics and philosophy of tort law reform, the role of good faith in contract law, comparative perspectives on setting aside contracts for mistake.
