This course surveys the law of remedies—the law governing what a court can do for a claimant who has been wronged. It will cover the principal remedies as well as history that is relevant to understanding contemporary practice, such as the distinction between legal and equitable remedies. Throughout we will attend to the underlying justifications of available remedies and how they relate to the substantive rights that they protect.
At the end of the course, students will:
- understand the principal remedies, when they are available, and how they work in practice;
- understand the trans-substantive principles governing remedies and how they operate in practice.
- understand how to think critically about the point of particular remedies and trans-substantive remedial principles.
- understand some basic equitable principles and how they operate in practice.
