Unconscionable Conduct in Australian Consumer and Commercial Contracts
Michelle Sharpe (LexisNexis, 2018)

Publisher: Written by Dr Michelle Sharpe, Unconscionable Conduct in Australian Consumer and Commercial Contracts provides legal practitioners with a detailed and practical guide through the often murky and confusing law relating to unconscionable advantage-taking by one contracting party over another. Contracts for the supply of goods and services form the basis of our modern free economy. The pervading policy of modern contract law is that parties are free to contract for the supply of goods and services on whatever terms they think fit. This freedom of contract may appear to be curtailed by certain contract law doctrines and consumer protection legislation. This book provides a detailed and up-to-date account of the law including current cases and legislation, as well as explaining how the relevant common law and equitable doctrines fit within contract law and the pervading policy of freedom of contract, and the rationale behind the relevant consumer protection legislation.

Money Awards in Contract Law
David Winterson (Hart Publishing, 2015)

Publisher: The quantification of contractual money awards is a topic of both significant theoretical interest and immense practical importance. Recent debates have ranged from the availability of gain-based relief to the basis for principles of remoteness and mitigation. While these and other important issues, such as the recovery of damages for non-pecuniary loss, are touched upon, the book's principal objective is to challenge the conventional interpretation of the principle generally acknowledged to govern this area of the law, which Parke B famously laid down in Robinson v Harman. According to this conventional interpretation, the objective of all money awards given in accordance with the Robinson v Harman principle is simply to 'compensate' the promisee for the 'loss' that can be attributed to the promisor's failure to perform as promised.

After challenging this orthodoxy, Dr Winterton proposes a new understanding of the Robinson v Harman principle, which draws an important distinction between money awards that substitute for the performance promised and money awards that aim to make good certain detrimental factual consequences that can be attributed to a promisor's breach. In exploring the significance of this distinction, the different principles underpinning the quantification and restriction of each kind of award are explored in addition to some important theoretical issues such as the effect that the occurrence of a breach has on the rights generated by contract formation. The book's unifying objective is to outline a coherent picture of the law of contractual money awards. ...

Accounting for Profit for Breach of Contract: Theory and Practice
Katy Barnett, Hart Publishing (2012)

Publisher: This book defends the view that an award of an account of profits (or 'disgorgement damages') for breach of contract will sometimes be justifiable, and fits within the orthodox principles and cases in contract law. However there is some confusion as to when such an award should be made. The moral bases for disgorgement damages are deterrence and punishment, which shape the remedy in important ways. Courts are also concerned with vindication of the claimant's performance interest, and it is pivotal in these cases that the claimant cannot procure a substitute performance via an award of damages or specific relief. The book argues that disgorgement damages should be available in two categories of case: 'second sale' cases, where the defendant breaches his contract with the claimant to make a more profitable contract with a third party; and 'agency problem' cases, where the defendant promises the claimant he will not do a certain thing, and the claimant finds it difficult to supervise the performance. ...

Gain-Based Damages: Contract, Tort, Equity and Intellectual Property 
James Edelman (Hart Publishing, 2002) (note: UK focus)

Publisher: On July 27,2000 the House of Lords delivered a decision where, for the first time in English law, it explicitly recognised that damages for civil wrongs can be assessed by reference to a defendant (wrongdoer)'s gain rather than a claimant's loss. The circumstances in which such gain-based damages might be available were left for development incrementally.

This book considers the nature of gain-based damages and explains when they have historically been available and why, and provides a framework for appreciating the operation of such damages awards. The first part of the book justifies the existence of these damages, which focus upon a defendant wrongdoer's gain made as a result of a civil wrong, explaining the nature and need for such a remedy and the scope of civil wrongs. The core thesis of the book is that two different forms of such gain-based damages exist: the first is concerned with restitution of a defendant's gains wrongfully transferred from a claimant; the second is concerned only with stripping profits from the defendant's hands. Once these two gain-based damages awards are separated they can be shown to be based upon different rationales and the basis for their availability can be easily understood.

The second part of the book considers and applies this approach, demonstrating its operation throughout the cases of civil wrongs. The operation of the two forms of gain-based damages is demonstrated in cases in the area of tort (chapter 4), contract (chapter 5), equitable wrongs (chapter 6) and intellectual property wrongs (chapter 7). It is shown that these gain-based damages awards have long been available in these areas and their operation has conformed to clear principle. The difficulty that has obscured the principle is the nomenclature which has hidden the true gain-based nature of many of these damages awards.

Unjust Enrichment
Barker and Grantham (LexisNexis, 2nd edn, 2017)

Publisher: Unjust Enrichment, 2nd edition is the emergence of the law of restitution has had a rapid and significant effect on developments in large portions of the private common law. Unjust Enrichment enables both practitioners and students to gain a full doctrinal and practical understanding of the law of restitution and its place in the wider law of civil obligations. The legal, policy and doctrinal arguments that underpin the law are spread across a disparate and often conflicting body of cases and academic commentary. This unique book combines carefully selected and edited extracts from leading cases and the writings of leading academics to provide a coherent theoretical structure through which the developing law this developing area of law can be studied and understood. The extensive commentary and analysis accompanying the materials both explains and challenges readers in their exploration of the area.

The second edition responds to the considerable judicial activity in the area in the last few years, notably the growing acceptance of both restitutionary claims and the idea of unjust enrichment as a unifying legal concept in Australia. It highlights the significant changes in the way that the High Court, in particular, has sought to re-conceptualise the subject over last decade.

Unjust Enrichment
James Edelman, Elise Bant (Hart Publishing, 2016)

Publisher: Unjust enrichment is one of the least understood of the major branches of private law. This book builds on the 2006 work by the same authors, which examined the developing law of unjust enrichment in Australia. The refinement of the authors' thinking, responding to novel issues and circumstances that have arisen in the maturing case law, has required many chapters of the book to be completely rewritten. The scope of the book is also much broader. It concerns the principles of the law of unjust enrichment in Australia, New Zealand, England and Canada. Major decisions of the highest courts of these jurisdictions in the last decade provide a fertile basis for examining the underlying principles and foundations of this subject. The book uses the leading cases, particularly in England and Australia, to distil and explain the fundamental principles of this branch of private law.

Mason & Carter's Restitution Law in Australia
K Mason, J Carter and GJ Tolhurst (LexisNexis, 3rd edn, 2016)

Publisher: Fifty years ago restitution was a wilderness, an apparent ‘miscellany of disparate categories’ through which litigant, judge and student trudged holding a compass marked ‘implied contract’ at its four points. The landscape of the modern Australian law of restitution, however, is complex. The topic of restitution addressed by the authors includes doctrines responding to different and/or additional policies as well as gain-based remedies appurtenant to wrongs with their juridical source outside unjust enrichment, which is only one of the bases for restitution.
