Titles in the Complete series combine extracts from a wide range of primary materials with clear explanatory text to provide readers with a complete introductory resource. This chapter on equitable remedies discusses that the courts’ powers to grant equitable remedies are discretionary and that equitable remedies vary from case to case. It also looks at the difference between the principles governing the grant of general and specific injunctions and the principles governing the grant and refusal of specific performance. It also mentions that all equitable remedies are in personam and can be granted in respect of property outside the jurisdiction of the court.
