Attempting fusion: Professor Worthington's 'Equity' and Its integration with the Common Law

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Professor Sarah Worthington's new book, Equity seeks to achieve two related objects: first, ‘to expose Equity's impact on the modern legal landscape’ and its ‘profound influence on the Common Law of property, contract, tort and unjust enrichment’; and, secondly, ‘to expose the possibilities for coherent substantive integration of the Common Law and Equity’. In short, the book attempts nothing less than to provide a simplified, rational and principled overview of the core concepts of Equity, its doctrines and remedies, in order to pursue the fusion of Equity and the Common Law. This article proposes to consider Worthington's book by outlining its burden, and then by engaging with some of the arguments made and conclusions drawn.
