not yet rated|write a review
Lord Goff of Chieveley retired as Senior Law Lord on 1 September 1998. This collection of essays was specially commissioned to mark his lordship's contribution to legal scholarship, not just from the bench, but as a teacher of law and as the co-author of a leading textbook on the Law ofRestitution. There cannot be many who can claim distinction in all three areas of the law. Although a number of the essays naturally focus on Unjust Enrichment, Lord Goff's interests range far beyond that subject. Hence, there are contributions on Criminal Law, Comparative Law, Contract, Tort, and Private International Law. The Search for Principle also takes the opportunity to bringto a wider audience Lord Goff's influential 1983 Macabaean Lecture. There is also a Foreword by Lord Mackay of Clashfern.

Editorial Reviews

`These essays are works of authority in their own right and they reflect the different approaches of jurists in their search for principle...There is much in this thought-provoking, both as regards the subject-matter of the esays in their own right but also as regards the wider question of thproper function of the jurist, a function which is clearly multifaceted, whether it is as codifier, critic or philosopher. It is a fitting tribute to Lord Goff and emphasises the importance of the judge and the jurist working together in the search for princple.'Graham Virgo Law Quarterly Reveiw October 2000
