- Remedies for breach of contract
This chapter begins with general discussions of concepts such as judicial remedies, procedure, enforcement, torts and breach of contract, and legal and equitable remedies. It then describes the book’s approach and methodology as well as its organisation and structure. This book is primarily structured according to, first, the functions of the remedies for torts and breach of contract and, secondly, the particular remedies concerned to effect those functions. There are four parts corresponding to the remedial functions (compensation, restitution and punishment, compelling performance or preventing (or compelling the undoing of) a wrong, and declaring rights). Within each part, the particular remedy or remedies for torts and breach of contract concerned to effect those functions are examined. A final part and chapter looks at remedies for equitable wrongs.
