Abstract

As Andrew Phang JA reminds us in his leading article in this special issue, the law of remedies has always been a subject of acute, perhaps pre-eminent, interest to counsel and clients engaged in private law disputes. It may be added that transactional lawyers are also only too aware of its significance in contract planning and drafting, as recent decisions on the doctrines of penalties by the highest courts in England and Australia attest.' However, its proper appreciation across legal practice has not always been reflected in the teaching and formal study of the subject.
