Abstract

This is a draft of the Introduction chapter from my new book, The Right of Redress (Oxford University Press, 2020). As the book argues, the law enables private parties to engage in redress by undoing the wrongs committed against them. Moreover, a distinctive kind of justice governs our legal rights of redress, different from the kind described in leading corrective justice approaches. Through analysis of these key ideas, The Right of Redress helps to make sense of tort law, contract law, fiduciary law, unjust enrichment doctrine, and equity.

Keywords: tort, contract, fiduciary, unjust enrichment, equity, corrective justice, civil recourse, remedies, self-help, self-defense, class action, arbitration, private law, Locke, Kant
