Professor Paul Mitchell said:

‘Last week’s conference celebrated the fiftieth anniversary edition of Goff and Jones on Unjust Enrichment, which we edit together with Dr Stephen Watterson.

We were delighted to welcome as speakers some of the world’s leading scholars in the area, and to host two days of lively and wide-ranging discussions, which included assessments of how unjust enrichment is developing around the world, and how current English law might need to adapt to meet new challenges.’
