Goff & Jones on Unjust Enrichment 10th editionSweet & Maxwell has published the 10th edition of Goff & Jones on Unjust Enrichment edited by Professor Charles Mitchell, Professor Paul Mitchell, and Professor Stephen Watterson.

Goff & Jones is the leading work on the law of unjust enrichment. Successive editions have played a major role in establishing the central importance of the subject for private and commercial lawyers and developing its key concepts and principles. The text is comprehensive in coverage and written by highly respected scholars who explain all of the rules governing claims in unjust enrichment and discuss how these have been applied through detailed examination of the case-law. The book is frequently cited in courts throughout the Commonwealth and continues to signpost future developments in the field.

The new 10th edition is completely up-to-date and contains detailed discussion of important decisions since the last edition. Several chapters have been wholly or substantially rewritten to take account of significant new cases, and their impact on topics including the recovery of benefits from remote recipients, the recovery of benefits transferred on a condition that fails, the recovery of ultra vires payments by public bodies, the limitation rules governing claims in unjust enrichment and interest awards on such claims.
