The law of estoppel is a modern concept with a medieval label. It concerns the enforcement of obligations outside the law of contract and tort; we might call it the law of consistency, which obliges people to stand by things they have said. This is a book for lawyers, but will be of interest to other readers as a picture of how the law has tried to deal with its own shortcomings. The book will be of interest practitioners and scholars in other jurisdictions particularly Australia and New Zealand.

Peter Birks's tragically early death, and his immense influence around the world, led immediately to the call for a volume of essays in his honour by scholars who had known him as a colleague, teacher and friend. One such volume, published in 2006, contained essays largely from scholars working in England (Mapping the Law: Essays in Memory of Peter Birks, edited by Andrew Burrows and Lord Rodger). This volume contains the essays of those outside England who chose to honour Peter, and appears later than the English volume, reflecting the far flung habitations of its authors. The essays contained in this volume are focussed around the law of unjust enrichment, but are not narrowly preoccupied - instead they move freely from unjust enrichment to some of the most profound questions in private law concerning taxonomy, the relationship between contract, property and unjust enrichment, and the place of remedies within private law. This volume, featuring the work of some of the world's great private lawyers, provides a fitting tribute to a great scholar, and a series of thought-provoking essays inspired by his example.

Title and Title Conflicts in respect of Intermediated Securities under English Law

This book examines property issues in respect of intermediated securities under English law, namely title and title conflicts between a true owner and a purchaser. Intangible book entry securities held with an intermediary, often commingled with the holdings of other clients of the intermediary, often give rise to uncertainty in property rights in the securities of an investor under most legal systems, for example, whether property rights can be established and how title conflicts are dealt with. This book identifies the flexible framework of English property law for establishing property rights over commingled intangibles, in particular through trusts; establishes the policy of priority rules as of comparing the merits of rights and preferring a vested right of a true owner over a subsequent purchaser, particularly a vested right under fiduciary relations. The book works towards the conclusion that, given the general principle of English property law for vested rights, title conflicts may be tilted towards purchasers in a mild rather than a radical way, by introducing a good faith purchaser rule to intermediated securities or leaving it to judicial discretion where an estoppel might work in favour of a purchaser. This book is suitable for lawyers, officials and academics in the field of intermediated securities, as well as trust, property and financial regulation.

Landmark Cases in Land Law is the sixth volume in the Landmark Cases series of collected essays on leading cases (previous volumes in the series having covered Restitution, Contract, Tort, Equity and Family Law). The eleven cases in this volume cover the period 1834 to 2011, although, interestingly, no fewer than six of the cases were decided or reported in the 1980s. The names of the selected cases will be familiar to property lawyers. However, individually, the essays provide a reappraisal of the cases from a wide range of perspectives - focusing on their historical, social or theoretical context, highlighting previously neglected aspects and even questioning their perceived importance. Collectively, the essays explore several common themes that pervade the law of property – the numerus clausus principle, the conclusiveness of registration, the desirability of certainty in the law and the central question of the enforceability of interests through changes in ownership of land. This volume provides a collection of essays that will be of interest to academics, students and practitioners.

The rule of law is widely perceived to be a public law doctrine, concerned with the way in which governmental authority conforms to the dictates of law. The goal of this book is to challenge this presumption. The chapters in this volume all consider the idea that the rule of law concerns the nature of law generally and the conditions under which any relationship - that among citizens as well as that between citizens and the state - becomes subject to law. Addressing two major questions, they ask if our understanding of the rule of law is enriched by considering how and to what degree it is expressed or realized in private law, and whether our understanding of the private law is enriched by adding the principles of the rule of law to the traditional list of core private law concepts. Bringing together leading philosophers of private and public law, this volume examines key questions in a little-explored field, and will be essential reading for all those interested in the rule of law and in private law theory.

The rules of land law are numerous, complex, and in some cases baffling to students. The study of land law is also often portrayed as dull. Too frequently those who find success in working out how the law operates in other areas find themselves defeated by land law. Even the great jurist Blackstone, while maintaining that 'there is nothing which so generally strikes the imagination, and engages the affections of mankind, as the right of property', also concluded that the study of land law 'afforded the student less amusement and pleasure in the pursuit' than the study of crime and tort. This book tries to help with that problem. It aims to tell the rules' story: to talk about them in terms of the work they do, in a way that will allow readers to understand and engage with them. And through the example it offers, it aims also to give students the confidence, spur and tools to go on to develop such perspectives for themselves. The book covers the main points of land law found in the syllabuses of law schools in England and Wales. While it is not intended as a comprehensive textbook on the topic, it offers sufficient detail for anyone reading it to gain an overview of the subject, and for those seeking more the footnotes offer plenty of pointers. As well as bringing the coverage up to date, this new edition adds chapters about two especially challenging aspects of the subject: the human rights dimension, and the nature of 'ownership'. As one reader of the first edition commented, 'it shone light where none had shone before, and lit a clear path to understanding'. 'Well written and clear. A great introduction.' Mika Oldham, Jesus College, Cambridge 'An excellent introduction. Many students will no doubt buy it.' Matthew Conaglen, Trinity Hall, Cambridge 'A very clear and interesting way into a complex subject.' David Gregory, Kingston University
