Unjust enrichment

This second volume of Unjustified Enrichment follows on from the first edition on enrichment by deliberate conferral; this volume covers enrichment acquired by any other manner.  The text provides an authoritative and comprehensive account of the subject, and will establish a scheme of the precise features and limits of claims of unjustified enrichment.  Robin Evans-Jones analyses the circumstances in which an obligation of restitution exists, the basis of each claim, the content of the obligation and its precise limits.
