The book focuses on the ongoing relationship of the common laws of England and Canada, the relation between contract and unjust enrichment, unjust factors, juristic reasons and contracts in Anglo-Canadian law and mistake in contract law and in unjust enrichment. Unjust enrichment, which can loosely be traced back to Roman law, demonstrates the existence of principles of law which transcend legal systems, albeit interpreted in a manner reflecting the culture and legal traditions of the state.
