The study of the law of remedies has found a place in the curriculum of many common law schools. This has generated debate on whether the law of remedies exists as a distinct body of law governed by its own systematic structures and principles, which can comfortably take its place beside other substantive private law subjects. The author argues that it can, and then suggests a number of important areas of law in which debate on appropriate remedial response is central to the articulation of the particular interest which has been violated. The author suggests that there is much useful work to engage the energies of scholars of the law of remedies.
