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 ninth conference in the series will be held at Melbourne Law School from 17-20 July 2018. Obligations IX will be co-hosted by Melbourne Law School and the Faculty of Law at the University of Oxford, and will address the theme Form and Substance in the Law of Obligations. The main round of the call for papers has closed, but late submissions will be considered for inclusion in a waiting list.
The Obligations Conference series is convened by Andrew Robertson.
