The South African Law of Unjustified Enrichment provides a comprehensive, systematic exposition of the principles of the law of unjustified enrichment. It sets out the general requirements for enrichment liability, differentiates between the main types of situations in which such liability arises, and indicates how enrichment claims are quantified, as well as when they terminate.

Often situations perceived as giving rise to enrichment liability have to be dealt with in terms of another area of law. A further aim of this book is to indicate how enrichment law interacts with these areas, most notably the laws of contract and delict, as well as property law, revenue law, and various statutory instruments.

Although the point of departure is to set out the existing law, the book contains suggestions on how unjustified enrichment may develop in the future, taking into account modern local and foreign scholarship.
