About this Publication:

This book of friends (liber amicorum) is a tribute to Professor JC Sonnekus by colleagues and friends from Europe and South Africa to celebrate his more than 40 years in the academy and his contribution to law and its development.

Authors from Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany and South Africa make contributions on the multitude of subjects and areas of jurisdiction to which professor Sonnekus contributed over the years. Subjects that are discussed, are divided under a general heading, the recognition and enforcement of judgments, prescription, uncertainty regarding common law rules and how the courts sometimes act in a law-making capacity, conditional cession and ‘who has the King’s voice‘– looking back at the convictions of the people and the legal convictions in the nineteenth century and how it could still lead to new insights.

The law of delict leads to contributions on accountability of children, the law concerning liability in general and liability for an omission.

The law of succession contains contributions on wills and trustees; the section on estoppel and enrichment touches on aspects of estoppel and the Turquand rule, as well as Ponzi schemes and pyramid schemes.

International developments are discussed in the section on the law of marriage and family law with contributions on marriage contracts and the consequences of divorce under German law, general matrimonial property law in Europe and the influence of the Belgian constitutional court on family law.

Insolvency law includes business rescue and the actio Pauliana and the law of contract contains a potpourri of contributions on the interpretation of contracts, perpetual contracts, evictions and independent warranties.

The law of things (property) section contains contributions on property law and habitatio, credit security law, fragmented property, syndicated loans, servitudes and digital assets.

This collection of essays concludes with two contributions on insurance law relating to self-steering and distance-steered vehicles and the sources of insurance law.
