Exploring Private Law presents a collection of essays, by leading scholars from across the world, on private law doctrines, remedies, and methods. The overarching purpose of the collection, inspired by recent debate, is to celebrate and illustrate the contribution that both 'top-down' and 'bottom-up' methods of reasoning make to the development of private law. With that purpose in mind, the contributors to the collection explore a range of topics of current interest: judicial approaches to 'top-down' and 'bottom-up' methods; teaching trusts law; the protection of privacy in private law; the development of the law of unjust enrichment; the private law consequences of theft; equity's jurisdiction to relieve against forfeiture; the nature of fiduciary relationships and obligations; the duties of trustees; compensation and disgorgement remedies; partial rescission; the role of unconscionability in proprietary estoppel; and the nature of registered title to land.
