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.

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.
