Abstract

Remedies in Equity – The Laws of Australia is a comprehensive reference for practitioners and students regarding the power of courts to award equitable relief in Australia.

This up-to-date text provides a clear and simple overview of key remedies in equity, grouped into the following topics: • Declarations; • Specific performance; • Rescission; • Injunctions; • Compensation and damages; • Tracing; • Taking accounts; and • Delivery up, cancellation and rectification.

Extensive case examples and factual discussion complement a thorough examination of established principles. This includes coverage of the latest judicial decisions and any statutory modification of the remedies in equity. This work also identifies the critical matters which can affect the exercise of a court’s discretion and when remedies in equity may or may not be available.

Authors David Wright, Senior Lecturer of the School of Law of the University of Adelaide, and Dr Samantha Hepburn, Associate Professor of Deakin University, have compiled a readable and authoritative analysis of the practical issues that arise in seeking remedies in equity.
