Restitution Roundtable – 14 December 2007

WLU Law logo, via their site.

On 14 December 2007, the Frances Lewis Law Center, of the School of Law, University of Washington and Lee, Lexington, Virginia, USA, in association with the University of Washington and Lee Law Review, will host

A Roundtable on Restitution and Unjust Enrichment in North America.

The main point underpinning the Roundtable is to get North American (ie, Canadian and US) Restitution scholars, practitioners, judges and others with an interest in the subject, together in one place, talking about current legal issues in the Law of Restitution and Unjust Enrichment. There seem to be too few opportunities to do so, except on the margins of other more generally focussed events. The hope is that this informal Roundtable will provide just such a context. Given that the American Law Institute‘s current project on a Restatement (Third) on Restitution and Unjust Enrichment is at a crucial stage, and that the Supreme Court of Canada’s recent case law is proving controversial, this would seem an opportune time.

Information about the current papers, registration and travel and accommodation, is available on the Roundtable wesbite and blog (see also here and here). The call for papers is now closed. Thanks to the generosity of the Frances Lewis Law Center, there is no charge for attending the Roundtable.
