Meagher, Gummow and Lehane's Equity: Doctrines and Remedies
28 Nov 2014
Meagher, Gummow and Lehane's Equity: Doctrines and Remedies has become the authoritative work on equity in Australia and a leading text in the common law world, presenting a scholarly analysis of the principles of equity by reference to the leading cases and statutory provisions. This new edition includes analysis of developments in Australia and the common law world over the past 12 years. It deals with all fundamental equitable doctrines and remedies, save for trusts, and covers the development of equity and its history in the United Kingdom and Australia, including the effects of the Judicature system. It has been described as "a most substantial and distinguished contribution to the literature of Equity" (Law Quarterly Review), and as exhibiting "a high standard in the articulation and explanation of equitable doctrines, and in the discussion of equitable remedies" (Australian Law Journal). Few if any Australian law books have carved so significant a niche in legal publishing. This work is an essential text for law practitioners and students.
