The Law of Restitution

Third Edition

Andrew Burrows

  • One of the most authoritative accounts of the law of restitution available, written by a leading figure in the field
  • The clear and concise writing style illuminates an often complex subject, making this essential reading for all those with an interest in restitution

New to this Edition:

  • Thoroughly revised to include developments in case law (such as Sempra Metals Ltd v Inland Revenue Commissioners, and Chief Constable of the Greater Manchester Police v Wigan Athletic AFC Ltd) and academic thought (particularly the late Peter Birks' 'absence of basis' approach).
  • More sharply defines the divide between restitution of unjust enrichment and restitution for wrongs
  • An updated, more accessible chapter structure makes the book even easier to use
