obligations_viii_website.jpgThe website for the Eighth Biennial Conference on the Law of Obligations has been launched.

The conference on the theme 'Revolutions in Private Law' will be held at the University of Cambridge from 19-22 July 2016. The conference will be hosted by the University of Cambridge Faculty of Law and Melbourne Law School. The conveners are Professor Sarah Worthington (University of Cambridge), Professor Andrew Robertson (University of Melbourne) and Professor Graham Virgo (University of Cambridge).

The Obligations Conferences bring together scholars and practitioners from throughout the common law world to discuss current issues in contract law, the law of torts, equity and unjust enrichment. The series originated at Melbourne Law School, where the first conference was held in 2002 and the second in 2004. Subsequent conferences in the series have been held at the University of Queensland, the National University of Singapore, the University of Oxford, the University of Western Ontario and the University of Hong Kong. Each conference addresses a particular theme, and the themes so far have focused on taxonomy, principle and policy, justifying remedies, goals, rights and challenging orthodoxy in the law of obligations. Further information about the previous conferences in the series can be found at the Obligations Conference website.
