The Law of Remedies

The Law of Remedies

New Directions in the Common Law

By Jeffrey Berryman and Rick Bigwood


Collectively, these essays illustrate the breadth and depth of attention that is now accorded to the study of remedies throughout the common law world. The collection also demonstrates the value of fruitful exchanges across common law jurisdictions that have much to gain from learning of one another’s experiences, thereby enriching the body of knowledge for a system that is inherently built upon discrete and incremental case law.

This volume of essays is the end product of the Second International Symposium on the Law of Remedies, a joint undertaking of the Faculties of Law at the Universities of Windsor, Canada, and Auckland (Research Centre for Business Law), New Zealand. The symposium brought together scholars drawn from four continents, representing the major Commonwealth common law jurisdictions, as well as the United States and Ireland.
