It discusses the historical perspective on equity, contempt rules, and forms of loss as they relate to damages.

Remedies in a Nutshell

This Nutshell explains what remedies are and their history. It examines the basic rules for legal and equitable remedies, injunctions, damages, restitution, rescission, reformation, and specific performance. In addition, it explains how remedies are used for injuries to realty, personal property and money, personal interests, misrepresentation, mistake, duress, and breach of contract. It also addresses restitution for unenforceable contracts.

How much do they cost?

Charlotte School of Law has purchased a subscription to these study aids on remedies as well as other course study aids. There is no cost to anyone at Charlotte Law with access to Westlaw. While Remedies in a Nutshell is available in course reserves in the library (if not checked out), the Gilbert Law Summaries: Remedies and Weaver and Kelly’s Black Letter Outlines on Remedies are not in the library’s collection. So here are some new resources. Purchasing just these three titles on Amazon would cost close to $120. Definitely, these study guides are a good deal for students wanting study aids on Remedies.
