Duress, Undue Influence and Unconscionable Dealing, 4th Edition

Duress, Undue, Influence and Unconscionable Dealing are grounds on which a contract can be set aside because the claimant was induced to enter into it by means which the law considers unacceptable. Professor Enonchong provides a detailed and rigorous analysis of the circumstances where an otherwise valid transaction can be avoided on each of these grounds.
Duress is a common law doctrine under which a contract may be avoided where the complainant was induced to enter into it by illegitimate pressure, such as a threat of physical violence, a threat to seize or damage property or economic pressure.
Undue Influence
There are two doctrines of undue influence: the equitable doctrine of undue influence is concerned with lifetime transactions (such as contracts), while the probate doctrine of undue influence is concerned with wills. The equitable doctrine of undue influence deals with cases where one person has acquired influence over another, and the ascendant person abuses that influence to induce the other person to enter into a lifetime transaction. It includes an evidential presumption of undue influence in certain cases. Probate undue influence applies in relation to wills. It allows the court to refuse to admit a will to probate where the testator was induced to sign the will by the exercise of undue influence. Unlike equitable undue influence, probate undue influence does not include an evidential presumption of undue influence.
Abuse of Confidence
The book also discusses the equitable doctrine of abuse of confidence, which is sometimes confused with, but is different from, the equitable doctrine of undue influence. The doctrine of abuse of confidence is concerned to protect a person (the principal) who has placed confidence in another person (the fiduciary) from abuse of that confidence in any transaction between the fiduciary and the principal (as where a solicitor buys property from his client).
Unconscionable dealing
Unconscionable dealing or unconscionable bargains is an equitable doctrine that provides protection to weaker parties in certain situations. The court will intervene on this ground to set aside a contract where, at the time of the contract: one party was suffering from some serious disadvantage, such as poverty, ignorance, illness, or otherwise, so that the circumstances existed of which unfair advantage could be taken; that weakness was exploited by the other party (“the stronger party”) in a morally reprehensible manner; and the resulting transaction is extremely one-sided in favour of the stronger party.

McGee: Limitation Periods 9th Edition

Limitation Periods by Professor Andrew McGee is a well-established and definitive text now in its ninth edition. Professor McGee steers practitioners through the complexities of the law of limitations, giving detailed guidance in all areas of law from preliminary issues to proceedings. The book is designed to help bring an action in good time and remedy delays which may lead to striking out. The book covers European and international limitation issues.
  • Provides guidance on time limitations in all areas of law, from preliminary issues to proceedings.
  • In a notoriously complex and confusing area of law with over 150 statutory time limits appropriate to specific causes of action this time-proven title cuts through the complexity to focus on what you need to know, saving you research and planning time.
  • Tells when time starts to run, how long the limitation period is, and the consequences of expiry in differing circumstances therefore helps the practitioner manage casework so that actions are begun within the required period.
  • Although with the expiry of the limitation period the conventional remedy is barred, the plaintiffs right is not extinguished. The book points out the options still available on expiry and the many exceptions to the rules that may apply.
  • The chapters are arranged so that actions in different areas of law are dealt with separately. The chapter on Disability, for example, explains the disabilities covered and the protections provided for the running (and stopping) of limitation periods for such persons.
  • All procedural matters are covered, with separate chapters on, for example, Pleading Questions (examining the issues arising from the pleading of a limitation point: how and when to plead, burden of proof, foregoing the statute, estoppel, etc.) and Procedural Delays.
  • Analyses the judgments in new case law, such as the Supreme Court judgment in Test Claimants in the Franked Investment Income Group Litigation v Revenue and Customs Commissioners and the Court of Appeal in Matthew v Sedman, and explains the implications for future actions and decisions.
  • Covers European, including updates following Brexit, and international limitation period issues.

Civil Fraud 1st Edition, 1st Supplement

Civil Fraud: Law, Practice and Procedure is designed to be the primary port of call for all practitioners conducting a civil fraud case. It deals with the subject in a comprehensive manner, combining in-depth legal analysis with a practical approach. The authors focus throughout on the real-life situations which litigants in this area regularly encounter and offer effective guidance on the complex practical and procedural issues which can arise.
The First Supplement comprehensively updates the law since the First Edition, including in light of leading cases such as Convoy Collateral v Broad Idea in the Privy Council (jurisprudential basis for freezing and Chabra injunctions), Racing Partnership in the Court of Appeal (unlawful means conspiracy), Wood v Commercial First in the Court of Appeal (bribery and secret commissions) and Rembrandt in the Court of Appeal (test for inducement in deceit), as well as the new Part 81 governing committal for contempt of court and the jurisdictional consequences of the Brexit legislation.
The book starts with an examination of common factual and legal scenarios in a fraud case, which can be difficult to navigate even for the most experienced litigators. The remainder of the text develops the legal, practical and procedural issues flowing from such scenarios.
The authors, drawing on a wealth of experience in litigating fraud claims, bring together the disparate areas of the law that fall under the label fraud, from the substantive causes of action common law, restitutionary and equitable claims and claims arising under statute through to remedies.
The book provides a full and comprehensible treatment of the myriad procedural swords and shields which can be used in fraud litigation, including freezing orders, proprietary and other injunctions, search orders, receivership, ancillary orders and the increasingly-used contempt jurisdiction. It also considers the key international aspects of civil fraud litigation. This is a primary single source point of reference which avoids the need to navigate a whole series of texts in a field where practitioners often work under considerable time pressure.
Civil Fraud: Law, Practice and Procedure works as a road map to take the practitioner from the moment of initial instructions through to a completed legal and practical analysis, whether at the various interlocutory stages, or at trial.

  • Guides the busy practitioner to help them translate the fact pattern with which they are presented in their instructions into the correct legal framework
  • Maps fact patterns commonly encountered into causes of action that might be pleaded and relief that might be sought in respect thereof and a mechanism which gives the reader a road map from factual instructions to completed legal analysis

Renewal of Business Tenancies 6th Edition

IDS Continuity of Employment 2022

The new edition of the IDS Employment Law Handbook, Continuity of Employment, sets out the statutory rules governing how continuity is calculated. The law in this area can be complex, particularly where a contract of employment ceases to exist between two periods of employment with the same employer or where employment is transferred between employers. However, the Handbook offers a clear and comprehensive examination of the statutory rules and explains the relevant legislation and pertinent case law in a logical and understandable way. It:
  • sets out the general principles for computing a period of continuous employment and explains how these rules are applied in the ordinary case where an employee is employed for an unbroken period under a contract of employment
  • deals with the situation where, despite a break in employment, the statutory rules provide for continuity to be preserved; for example, where the employee has been off sick or there has been a temporary cessation of work
  • discusses those rare situations where a break in employment does not sever continuity as such but nor does it count in computing a period of continuous service; for example, weeks where the employee was on strike
  • considers continuity of employment where there has been a change of employer; for example, where there has been a transfer of a business or undertaking.
This Handbook is an authoritative and indispensable guide to an important area of employment law that underpins many of the statutory employment protection rights available to employees
