Foreign Money Liabilities (1983)

This project examines developments in English law dealing with the complex issue that arises when the currency in which a litigant’s claim is asserted differs from the currency of the forum in which the claim is litigated. The English developments are examined in a Canadian context, and recommendations are made aimed at achieving similar reforms here through legislation.
