Abstract:

The House of Lord's recent decision in DMG was keenly anticipated by restitution lawyers as potentially answering the fundamental question whether the English law of unjust enrichment had embraced the continental notion of ‘absence of basis’ as the key to liability. Instead of answering that question, the decision in DMG may have complicated it. While several of their Lordships expressed cautious support for the ‘absence of basis’ approach, it is noted that the majority's approach to liability for mistake of law may have further entrenched the traditional approach to liability for unjust enrichment based on the identification of ‘unjust factors’.
