Implementation measures are discussed in Chapter 1 and the practical consequences of the new procurement regime are explored in Chapter 7 on tendering.

Chapter 6 also includes a new table showing how this legislation applies to government at all levels. The current status of derivative immunity following the High Court's decision in Baxter.

Mason and Carter s Restitution Law in Australia

Author: Keith Mason
Publisher:
ISBN: 0409341622
Release Date: 2016-05-03
Genre: Restitution

Restitution is one of the law's few remaining commons, largely untouched by statute. Fifty years ago restitution was a wilderness, an apparent 'miscellany of disparate categories' through which litigant, judge and student trudged holding a compass marked 'implied contract' at its four points. The landscape of the modern Australian law of restitution, however, is complex. The topic of restitution addressed by the authors includes doctrines responding to different and/or additional policies as well as gain-based remedies appurtenant to wrongs with their juridical source outside unjust enrichment, which is only one of the bases for restitution. In this third edition, the content has been revised and updated. Chapter 3 (Want of Title) has been substantially updated and Chapter 24 (Change of Position) has been completely rewritten. This book is essential reading for members of the judiciary, barristers and solicitors Australia wide, as well as students of commercial law, equity and remedies.

Contract as Assumption

Author: Brian Coote
Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing
ISBN: 9781847317490
Release Date: 2010-04-02
Genre: Law

It has many times been said that contracts involve assumptions of obligation or liability, but what that means, and what it is that is assumed, have not often been discussed. It is to further such discussion that some of the author's previously published writings around this subject have been brought together in this book. His basic premises are that contractual obligation and liability in this context are two sides to the same coin and that an assumption of one is an assumption of both. Parties are bound not because liability has been imposed upon them by law as a result of their having entered into a contract but because, in the act of assuming, they have imposed it upon themselves. Contract provides a facility the purpose of which is to enable this to be done within the limits prescribed by law. The implication of these premises are much more significant than might be supposed when applied to such areas of contract as formation, consideration, intention to contract, exception clauses, privity and damages. The book concludes with a treatment of the role of assumption in tort. Because of the importance of its subject matter and its wide-ranging treatment, this book should appeal not only to teachers and postgraduate students of contract but also to practitioners in the field and to anyone else with an interest in contract theory.
