71116 Remedies

Requisite(s): 70211 Contracts AND 70311 Torts


This subject flows on from 70311 Torts and 70211 Contracts, focusing on the common law and equitable remedies available for those common law causes of action. The subject also introduces students to statutory remedies for misleading and deceptive conduct under the Australian Consumer Law. Accordingly, this subject compares and contrasts common law, equitable and statutory remedies, demonstrating how a particular interest may be protected by the law in several ways. Students are also introduced to the law of restitution.

This subject links with the private law subjects studied in a law degree. The interests protected by tort, contract and real property – which together provide the general legal foundation for modern private law – overlap, therefore interference with these interests may be protected by more than one right or remedy.

A fundamental objective of the study of remedies is to consider the various court-ordered remedies that may be sought by a person who has been wronged and comparatively evaluate them. The study of remedies is concerned with choices available and considerations which inform them.
