The Obligations Conference brings together scholars and practitioners from throughout the common law world to discuss current issues in contract law, the law of torts, equity and unjust enrichment. The series originated at Melbourne Law School, where the first conference was held in 2002 and the second in 2004. Subsequent conferences in the series have been held at the University of Queensland, the National University of Singapore, the University of Oxford, the University of Western Ontario, the University of Hong Kong and the University of Cambridge. Each conference addresses a particular theme. The conferences to date have focused on taxonomy, principle and policy, justifying remedies, goals, rights, challenging orthodoxy and revolutions in the law of obligations. The next conference in the series, Obligations IX, will be held at the University of Melbourne from 17-20 July 2018. It will address the theme 'Form and Substance in the Law of Obligations'.
The conference series is convened by Andrew Robertson.
