Peter Birks and Scots Enrichment Law

Peter Birks and Scots Enrichment Law

(p.401) 21 Peter Birks and Scots Enrichment Law
Mapping the Law

Hector MacQueen

Oxford University Press

Peter spent some years as Professor of Civil Law at Edinburgh University. Although he had never had occasion previously to look into the Scots law of unjust enrichment, he produced two remarkable papers which were to shake this area of Scots law to its core. This chapter traces the various ways in which Peter's influence was brought to bear not only on academics and law reformers but on the Scottish courts, culminating in decisions which sought to set the law off on a new and more coherent path.
