  • growing divisions about the nature and scope of application of promissory estoppel: DHJPM Pty Ltd v Blackthorn Resources Ltd;
  • developments in the law of restitution, including the role of unjust enrichment as well as the change of position and illegality defences to restitutionary claims: Australian Financial Services and Leasing Pty Ltd v Hills Industries;
  • recent High Court approaches to construction and implication of terms: Electricity Generation Corporation v Woodside Energy Ltd;
  • developments in principles applying to termination for non-fulfilment of a contingent condition: Principal Properties Pty Ltd v Brisbane Broncos Leagues Club Ltd;
  • discussion of the scope of the penalty doctrine: Paciocco v Australia and New Zealand Banking Group Ltd;
  • discussion of recent case law applying the prohibition against misleading or deceptive conduct, including: Madden v Seafolly Pty Ltd and Australian Competition and Consumer Commission v TPG Internet Pty Ltd;
  • important new case law on both unconscionable dealing in equity and under statute: Kakavas v Crown Melbourne Ltd; and
