Edinburgh School of Law Research Paper No. 2012/04
Of Justinian’s four classes of obligations (ex contractu, quasi ex contractu, ex delicto, quasi ex delicto), the quasi-contractual one has resisted rationalization the longest. This paper makes the claim that quasi-contracts should disappear, as a category, from French law and be replaced with a general action in unjustified enrichment. It also explores the difficulties that such a switch would entail.
