Part Four Compelling performance or preventing (or compelling the undoing of) a wrong, 23 Injunctions
Andrew Burrows QC FBA
- Remedies for breach of contract — Damages
This chapter considers the law on injunctions. An injunction is an equitable remedy available for torts and breach of contract (and equitable wrongs). The chapter first introduces the three important pairs of contrasting injunctions: prohibitory and mandatory injunctions, quia timet injunctions and injunctions where a wrong has already been committed, and final and interim injunctions. It then examines in depth the principles governing the grant of each of the main types of injunction along with the function each performs as a remedy for torts and breach of contract. Although not an injunction, the final section considers the remedy of the appointment of a receiver (and manager).
