End-of-chapter questions: Answer Guidance 29.2

Remedies beyond compensatory damages

This broad question covers much of the material discussed in Chapters 27, 28, and 29. You should have thought about why compensatory damages are the primary remedy for breach of contract, and whether this is satisfactory. Would it be prefereable for the courts to order more readily specific performance or injunctions, for example? You should be selective in the material you consider, and focus on the leading cases to support your arguments.
