Remedies is a practical yet challenging subject which is invoked in almost every legal dispute. This book sets out the legal principles of remedies and their application to legal problems arising from civil matters, particularly obligations arising from contract. Written by an author who has a wealth of knowledge on the law of contract and remedies, Civil Remedies in Malaysia provides a comprehensive exposition of the law on remedies as it applies in Malaysia. It brings together, in a compact and handy volume for the easy reference of the busy practitioner, remedies applicable in contractual and commercial litigation. Relevant statutory provisions, in particular those of the Contracts Act 1950 and the Specific Relief Act 1950, and a huge volume of case law, both local and foreign, have been carefully surveyed and analysed to distil the applicable principles of law.
This book is the first to treat the subject of civil remedies from a Malaysian perspective. Besides the remedies of rescission, damages, specific performance and injunction, the book also covers the rapidly growing areas of restitutionary and equitable remedies. In this regard, regular citation and discussion of the developing case law from England, Australia and India as well as references to leading textbooks make this book an invaluable resource to illuminate the understanding of the often amorphous body of principles pertaining to restitutionary and equitable remedies.
Civil Remedies in Malaysia is a book which should prove immensely useful to practitioners in their legal practice, judicial officers, in-house counsel, academics and law students wanting to make further research on this subject.
