About the event

This seminar is also available as a webinar.


The High Court’s decision in Louth v Diprose that emotional dependence significantly contributed to special disadvantage was a significant development within the doctrine of unconscionable conduct. The decision in Louth established a template of sorts that found useful application in the later cases of Williams v Maalouf, Xu v Lin and Mackintosh v Johnson. Though they are few, these cases form a definable subset within the broader doctrine of unconscionable conduct that might broadly be termed ‘clouded judgment’ cases. This CPD presentation by a senior academic from the University of NSW will explore the development of the law of unconscionable conduct in matters relating to the broken-hearted.
