Many attempts have been made since the eighteenth century to explain the relation to each other of concepts in Anglo-American private law, but none of these has commanded general assent nor been found entirely acceptable as a historical account. In this course a number of legal issues are examined in which fundamental concepts (including property, contract, wrongdoing, fiduciary duty, unjust enrichment, and public policy) have operated not in isolation from each other, but cumulatively and in combination.
