Overview

Build upon your knowledge of Equity. Complex issues will be explored at an advanced level and topics will be drawn from a selection of the principal areas of equitable causes of action and remedies. The selection of issues will incorporate comparative aspects where relevant and may include contemporary complex and controversial developments in Australian jurisprudence.

Topics covered may vary, depending on topicality, and interest but are likely to include fiduciary obligations of company directors, fiduciary liability for non-disclosure, agency, subrogation, the interaction between equity and restitution law in Australia, the equitable liability of banks, the fusion of law and equity, proportionate liability for equitable wrongdoing, and equitable personal and proprietary remedies.

  • conduct independent research into relevant Australian and international materials on contemporary equity issues; and

  • write clear, creative and persuasive opinions and critical essays demonstrating an advanced understanding of commercial-focused equity issues.
