High Court of Australia Has shown a Reluctance Towards the Invention and Expansion of Equitable Doctrines and Remedies

‘It has to be said that the High Court of Australia has shown a reluctance (some might even say a hostility) towards the invention and expansion of equitable doctrines and remedies’.

The Hon Justice Kirby ‘Equity’s Australian Isolationism’ WA Lee Equity Lecture, Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane 19 November 2008, 20-21. (Available on WebCT – 01. The History & Nature of Equity)

Critically discuss this statement. Should equitable doctrines and remedies be expanded? If so, how might this be achieved?
