Unjustified Enrichment: Key Issues in Comparative Perspective

Front Cover
David Johnston, Reinhard Zimmermann
Cambridge University Press, Apr 18, 2002 - Law - 749 pages
Unjustified enrichment is one of the most intellectually vital areas of private law. However, little unanimity exists among civil-law and common-law legal systems about structuring this important branch of the law of obligations. This book analyses a range of key issues, considered both by a representative of a common-law, and a representative of a civil-law system. This approach illuminates both similarities or differences between systems, and what different systems can learn from each other. This will be valuable for academic analysis of the law and its development by the courts.
