Abstract as per original application
(English/Chinese):
My research seeks to produce a comprehensive account of how the doctrine of mistake operates within different substantive areas of private law and whether the different rules and remedies available to relieve a mistaken transfer can be rationalised to develop a more coherent framework for the law of mistake. It examines all the private law contexts in which a mistake may arise. The research is doctrinal and comparative in approach, and will contribute significantly to our understanding of the policy goals of different areas of law, of the interaction between law and equity, and of the possibility of postulating a rational and coherent law of mistake.
此研究旨在全面闡述錯誤原則於不同私法領域中的運用,以及理順受錯誤影響的財產轉移之不同規則和濟助的可能性。錯誤在私法背景下如何產生亦會被探討。此研究將以原則性和比較性角度顯著地增進我們對不同法律領域的政策目標、普通法與衡平法的相互影響及擬定一個合理和連貫的錯誤原則的可能性的認知。
