Publication Date :
1 Jan 1991
26 chapters focus on the conflict between the prohibition of illegal contracts on the ground of public policy and the fair, morally just, claims of parties to such contracts which can arise, and on the extraordinary range of judicial solutions to the conflict. The chapters cover the ambit of the related maxims ex turpi causa and in pari delictu; restitution (8 chapters); enforcement; illegality; and third parties. They conclude with pleadings and practice.
