Commercial Law and Equitable Obligations
Researchers at the Centre for Law, Markets and Regulation recognise the multi-dimensional and fundamental effects of private legal relations on regulation. In its creation, implementation and interpretation as well as in its enforcement, private law is all of facilitative, creative and limiting for regulation at varying points. The same may be argued for in reverse about regulation. Taking a lead from our colleagues in the UNSW Law Private Law Policy and Research Group. CLMR researchers consider ‘private law’ to be legal rules and principles that govern the relationships between individuals in society, or between individuals and the state where the state is afforded no greater privileges than a private person. In this CLMR research domain members have private law commercial and equitable obligations as their focus of inquiry. Modes of enforcement of private law rights are also a primary area of research interest.
