Lord Sumption has been one of the most influential judges of his generation. This book critically reflects on the important and controversial issues posed by his jurisprudence.
Using Lord Sumption's contributions as a springboard, the book contains a selection of essays that consider 'where next' in relation to topics such as:
- contractual interpretation;
- tortious duties of care;
- compensatory damages;
- proprietary restitution;
- piercing the corporate veil.
The book covers a broad range of areas in private law including contract, tort, unjust enrichments, equity, company and commercial law, as well as private international law and civil procedure.
