About Misleading Silence

This collection brings together a team of outstanding scholars from across the common law world to explore the treatment of misleading silence in private law doctrine and theory. Whereas previous studies have been contractual in focus, here the topic is explored from across the full spectrum of private law. Its approach encompasses equitable and common law principles, as well as taking an integrated approach to key statutory regimes. The highly original contributions draw on rich theoretical, historical, comparative, cross-disciplinary and doctrinal perspectives. This is truly a landmark publication in private law, with no counterpart in the common law world.

Contributors: Professor Elise Bant, Professor Jeannie Paterson, Professor Rick Bigwood; Professor Michael Bryan; Professor John Cartwright; Professor Mindy Chen-Wishart; Professor Simone Degeling; Professor Pamela Hanrahan; Professor Luke Harding; Professor Matthew Harding; Professor Catharine MacMillan; Professor Hector MacQueen; Professor Donna Nagy; Justice Andrew Phang; Professor Pauline Ridge; Professor Andrew Robertson; Ms Anna Williams.
